October 30, 2015 – May 15, 2016

The accompanying exhibition, Pattern Pieces, examines pattern, shape, and color in contemporary art as it relates to quilts and their long history as both utilitarian and artistic objects. Spanning time and media, Pattern Pieces features work by James A. Michener, Virgil Marti, Elizabeth Osborne, Laura Petrovich-Cheney, and Alan Goldstein. This dynamic grouping of work by contemporary artists offers a unique look at the building blocks of visual art within the context of patchwork and quilting in American art
