To celebrate Ruth’s induction into the Quilters Hall of Fame, the New England Quilt Museum is featuring quilts from our Permanent Collection made by contemporary Massachusetts quilt artists. Many of these quilts appeared in our 2007 exhibit Contemporary MASSters, curated by Anita Loscalzo. Since 2007, we have acquired a few more quilts by our talented Massachusetts art quilters, which will be shown as well.
Phase One of Contemporary MASSters II is now on display in the Nancy Donahue Permanent Collection Gallery until July 6. Featured is Archipelago by Nancy Halpern of Natick, which was named one of the hundred best quilts of the twentieth century. Also on display are works by Sylvia Einstein of Belmont, Dr. Michelle David of Boston, Beatriz Grayson of Winchester, Carole Ann Grotrian of Cambridge, Barbara Lydecker Crane of Lexington and Judy Becker of Newton. Phase Two will be on display in our Classroom Gallery from June 2 to July 31 and will include collection quilts created by Ruth McDowell.
On June 7 at 1 pm, New England Quilt Museum will honor Ruth McDowell with a reception at NEQM. All are welcome!
