"Warmth and Beauty" - Adk QUILTS

American women have expressed their identity and creativity through quilting since Colonial times. 
From dark and sometimes lonely, cold winters, hand stitching by candle and firelight, and using repurposed fabric scraps to create warmth, today, American quilts are collected and copied worldwide for their beauty and interest as folk art and textile art. 

Coming from the towns of Jay, and Upper Jay, Keeseville, Wilmington, and Essex, the five women who are showcased in the exhibit “Warmth and Beauty,” share their works and their unique stories of how quilting became a part of their lives.   Eleven quilts and works in fiber arts are physically on display in the Tahawus Windows Gallery.  Twenty-two pieces are in the Tahawus Online Exhibit - “Warmth and Beauty.”

In addition, several weekend education workshops will be offered enhancing the “Warmth and Beauty” exhibit and including a Trunk Show.

 Press articles:  Read about the Retrospective

(6/18/20, LCW, Aja Landolfi) "When a new business opens it doors, owners can hope they will remain open for years to come....A lot can happen in a decade, and taking a trip down memory lane can be a fun way to see how this business has grown."

(6/14/20, Tim Rowland, The Sun) "This year because of the coronavirus, the Tahawus Cultural Center in Au Sable Forks has been temporarily unable to open its doors to the public, so Rebecca Kelly and Craig Brashear have created a 10-year online retrospective of art, hisgtory and culture that have been featured through the years since its first Main Street Gallery presentation in 2011."

(6-23-20, Adirondack Almanack) "The First 10-Years Retrospective opens online June 26, and gives the community a means of looking back --a happy reminder of gatherings in celebration of creative achievement."
