Janice Jones, Carol Anne Grotrian and Janice Hayes-Cha Quilts and collages by three artists who share techniques based on putting pieces together to form the diverse landscapes of our lives. May 8 – June 19, 2015
Opening reception: Friday, May 8, 5-7 pm
The Chester F. Sidell Gallery at Essex Art Center is pleased to present Pieces from Life:
Quilts and collages by three artists who share techniques based on putting pieces together to form the diverse landscapes of our lives. Each artist explores their own distinctive technique and medium. Quilts have been traditional textiles in American homes since the late 18th century; they were made or given for important life events such as weddings, the birth of a child, graduations, the departure of a loved one to another part of the country, etc. Through time quilts have been used in daily life but also as decorative pieces. Collage artists use a similar technique of placing small pieces of fabric, paper or objects to create wonderful images. This exhibit brings together three artists whose artwork has taken quilting and mixed media collage to a different level.
