Modella Gallery is pleased to present ‘de.light/FULL’, a group show of art quilts made by the members of the Studio Art Quilt Associates from Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Indiana. The exhibition runs from November 7th through December 14th, 2019, with the opening reception from 6-8pm on Thur., Nov. 7.
In this exhibit the artists use textiles to express the primary theme of ‘delight’ and ‘abundance’ in a creative or innovative way. The artists were encouraged to interpret their own sense of ‘de.light/fULL’ using abstract, graphic or representational styles and themes. Whether amusing, entertaining or exuberant, de.light/FULL art quilts may be perceived from multiple perspectives.
