Quilts by Guest Artist Pat Cox in the Arnesen Atrium
$3.00 Admission Donation
April 8, 1:00 PM. Walking Tour of Pat Cox’s Quilts, led by the artist.
Patricia Cox, internationally acclaimed quilter and applique expert, teacher, designer, lecturer, and author will display her work in the Arnesen Atrium. The quilts that Pat will display use applique quilting methods. These include traditional floral applique, Baltimore-style applique and Hawaiian applique. All of the quilts showcase the artists original designs. Some fabrics were hand-dyed to the artist’s specifications to produce unusual color overlay effects. In the fall, Pat displayed her Japanese-style quilts, which demonstrated Japanese elements such as asymmetry and bold colors. The quilts in this show feature nature and the colors of a spring garden – brights and pastels – and are traditionally symmetrical in their settings.
