Cutting-edge quilts

March 1, 2012 - New Times - Volume 26, Issue 31

Most art is stiff and square with sharp corners. But what if you want to enjoy beautiful imagery you can snuggle with? Head up to Studios on the Park in Paso Robles for “Fabrications,” an exhibition of art quilts created by the Cutting Edge Fiber Arts Group of San Luis Obispo County. Works in this exhibit feature fine art fabricated using a wide range of surface design techniques and materials including dyes, paint, beads, yarn, silk-screening, batik, photography, shibori, and more. The work will be on display March 1 to April 1 with a special opening reception March 3 during First Saturdays: Wine and the Arts. Several galleries and tasting rooms will open their doors from 5 to 8 p.m. for an evening of culture, community, and socially acceptable public drunkenness. Call 238-9800 for more information.
