Circular Abstractions: Bulls Eye Quilts, a touring exhibition that showcases some of the best machine piecing and quilting being done today. The Juried, invitational exhibition features 51 quilts by an array of artists that improvise around the Bulls Eye pattern: a four quadrant design with a bulls eye at the center of each quarter. Color and design become the focus of a dazzling array of quilts inspired by the innovations of legendary fine art quilt maker Nancy Crow. The artists were challenged to create artworks that stretched the possibilities of the machine-pierced quilt and conveyed a sense of energy and excitement. Participating artists come from across the US and abroad, with represented countries including Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Switzerland. A Printed, full-color catalog accompanies the exhibition and will be available for purchase.
