Enjoy happy hour at Piedmont Arts with a free guided tour of the exhibits, The Art of the Quilt: Let’s Celebrate and Works by Virginia Foothills Quilters Guild on Thursday, December 15 from 5 – 7 pm at Piedmont Arts.
Betty Blessin, co-curator of The Art of the Quilt, will lead a gallery talk from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. Complimentary refreshments and an open bar will be available during the event.
Over 40 quilt artists from across the Southeast have work on display in The Art of the Quilt, a biennial invitational exhibition co-curated by master quilter Linda Fiedler and Betty Blessin. This year’s exhibition commemorates the 10th anniversary of The Art of the Quilt. Local members of Virginia Foothills Quilters Guild also have work on display in the Lynwood Artists Gallery.
“Art @ Happy Hour is a fun way to experience Piedmont Arts exhibits,” said Director of Exhibitions Heidi Pinkston. “The event is low-key and casual, encouraging guests to view the quilts up close, ask questions, make comments and learn more about the art of quilt making.”
