Exhibit: Fiber Visions Whisper Challenge Quilts

July 20 @ 11:00 am - August 13 @ 4:00 pm UTC+0

Free

On exhibit July 20 through August 13, M, T, Th and Fri 11 – 4 pm – A Whisper Challenge is like a childhood game of telephone, adapted to quilts. The initiator chooses a photo and uses it for inspiration to make a quilt. The quilt is passed on to the next person, who is inspired to interpret that quilt and then passes it on. Each participant sees only the previous quilt. When the entire series is revealed for the first time, members see how their work inspired others and how that inspiration was interpreted. As each piece is viewed in succession, the influence of color, shape and line become apparent. On another level a sense of safety, home, comfort, shelter, warmth, cold and changing seasons is conveyed using a variety of techniques. The result of a Whisper Challenge is amazing in that even though each participant is limited to seeing only one quilt in the series, the end product reveals a cohesive collection.
