Latest exhibition arrives at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

     The new exhibition “Circular Abstractions: Bull’s Eye Quilts” arrived on September 23, 2017, and continues until January 21, 2018 at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

     The exhibition includes 26 different quilts crafted by 24 diverse artists. Curator Nancy Crow sent out an invitation challenging each artist with the task to create a unique Bull’s Eye pattern: four circles comprised of concentric rings placed in four quadrants.

Artists responded from five countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and the U.S.

 Each artist used pattern, shape, color, texture, line, rhythm, value and movement in their own way to recreate the classic bull’s eye in their own unique way. Because of this vast diversity in origin, artist and meaning, the Kalamazoo Institute of Art is now a temporary home to beautiful array of handmade quilts that each has its own story.
