Studio Montclair Presents "Inspired By Quilts"

(MONTCLAIR, NJ) -- Studio Montclair presents “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. The exhibit will run from September 5 to October 19, 2019 at Studio Montclair Gallery, 127 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ. The exhibit features artwork inspired by the antique quilt collection at the Montclair History Center.

The exhibit 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.

Studio Montclair Presents "Inspired By Quilts"To create these works of art, participating artists were influenced by such elements as shape, color, the creative process through which the quilts were designed and assembled, the materials with which they were made, a written description of the quilt and its history, or even consideration of the woman who created it and her place in society.  According to Curator Virginia S. Block, “Asking one to garner inspiration from an antique quilt may seem like the result would be predetermined and obvious at first thought, especially due to the nature of quilting itself. However, each artist in this exhibit seems to have been ignited by a unique spark of originality. That being said, quilting was used as a springboard to a much more free interpretation within each artist’s process.”

Curators include: Virginia S. Block, Jane Mitchell Eliasof, Yvette Lucas. Participating Artists: Lisa Basile, Diane Cherr, Maryann Didriksen, Circe Dunnell, Sarah Fader, Susan Fidlon, Harriet Finck, Yolanda Fundora, Emily Gilman Beezley, Madeline Giotta, Rachael Grochowski, Michelle Harpster, Linda Hess Conklin, Rachel Kanter, Gina Kingsley, Claude Larson, Sharon Libes, Maria Lupo, Patricia Malarcher, Betsy Meyer-Donadio, Tara Mhella, Pamela Moore, Leslie Nobler, Courtney Novak, Mary Alice Orito, Alfonse Pagano, Susan Paladino, Kate Perri, Jean-Paul Picard, Norman Rosenblum, Ela Shah, Peter Tilgner, Susan van Inwegen, Louise Wheeler, Audrey Yankielun.

An opening reception will take place on Friday, September 6 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
