On November 2, 2019 I attended the Quilts=Art=Quilts (QAQ 2019) exhibit at the Schweinfurth Art Center located in Auburn, New York.  Auburn is the last home and final resting place of Harriot Tubman.  A beautiful town located north of the Finger Lakes Region.

Though I have gone to the quilt museum in San Jose, California and have attended a couple of quilting conferences, I have never been to an exhibit for fine art quilts.  Both my husband and I enjoyed this exhibit (with awards given to some of the quilts).  I love working with textile.  It is a strong tactile media and this exhibit demonstrates that there are really no limits to the materials one can use to express their inner creative soul.

Note:  I will be dividing the quilts up into themes for this presentation.  The center does allow photos (no flash!) as long as the photographer gives credit to the artists (always!).  I did not take photos of every quilt.  Most are for sale.  Contact the center or go on their website for more information.  Or…better yet…go there yourself and experience this magnificent display of a beautiful art form.
