Exhibits

Front Range Contemporary Quilters has an active and vibrant exhibitions program showcasing member’s art. We hold at least one exhibition per year in local and regional art spaces, from museums and art centers to public spaces such as hospitals and libraries. All our exhibitions are juried by arts professionals from outside Front Range Contemporary Quilters. Often themed, the exhibitions have served to bring awareness of the art quilt to a wide audience.

Diversity

National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado
Maya Angelou said: “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”

This exhibit asks the artist to explore that notion with an exploration of diversity in media, technique, subject matter or through social commentary.

This exhibit will also feature a separate montage of 12” x 12” works, not necessarily on the theme of Diversity.
Accepted art work delivery: Accepted art work may be delivered at FRCQ meeting on August 21, 2017. Final deadline for delivery to NCAR is August 28, 2017.  Exhibit Opens: September 1, 2017.

Trunk Show

FRCQ members volunteered 12 x 12 inch art pieces to create a traveling collection or Trunk Show. These fiber pieces are used as an outreach program to both introduce textile art to various groups on the Front Range as well as promote the work of FRCQ. Textile art has become a recognized and valued art form. This traveling Trunk Show provides a visual display of textile art to existing and upcoming artists, students, traditional quilters and the retired community.

Please contact the Board to reserve and check out the trunk show for your group. Photos courtesy of Rhonda Denney.
