Art Exhibit: "Inspired by… QUILTS"


Studio Montclair is pleased to present “Inspired by… Quilts,” an exhibit in partnership with the Montclair History Center under the umbrella of Studio Montclair’s Virginia S. Block Community Partnership Exhibition Program. An opening reception will take place on Friday, September 6 from 7 to 9 pm. This exhibit features artwork inspired by the antique quilt collection at the Montclair History Center. It encompasses not only quilts but also sculpture, photography, collage, works on paper and canvas, computer-generated works, encaustic art, and ceramic relief. All of the works—many of which are non-objective—embody a physical or emotional reference to the quilt collection.

These partnerships are designed to inspire our membership, create new connections, and to reach new audiences. This year we have partnered with the Montclair History Center to produce an exhibit inspired by their collection of 19th and early 20th century quilts.
