Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island, SC, Offers Quilts

The Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island, SC, will present Island Vibes, featuring quilts by members of the Palmetto Quilt Guild, on view in the Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Gallery, from Dec. 9 through Feb. 28, 2014.

The focus of the exhibit is to celebrate the colors and life-style of Hilton Head Island through quilts. The quilts in the exhibit are not traditional, yet they are colorful and vibrant wall quilts created by fabric artists. Art quilters create realistic or abstract art using fabric and then quilt it to create a three-dimensional effect.

There are six discussion/demonstrations events scheduled with this exhibit. Each event explores a different aspect of quilt culture and history, from antique and traditional to contemporary art quilts. The events will be held at 10:30am on Jan. 14, 21, and 29 and Feb. 5, 12, and 19, 2014, in the Sea Island Room at the Museum.

The exhibit and events are sponsored by the Palmetto Quilt Guild. The Guild was founded in 1993 and has over 180 members and meets the 3rd Thursday each month at the Beach and Tennis Resort. Their Quilt Gallery is located in Pineland Station and is open Mon. through Fri., from 10:30am until 3:30pm. Annually the Guild donates about 300 handmade quilts to charity and awards a scholarship to a graduating High School Senior.
