ARTworks in Beaufort, SC, Features Exhibit of Modern Quilts

The Arts Council of Beaufort, Port Royal & Sea Islands in Beaufort, SC, will present an exhibit by members of the Beaufort Modern Quilt Guild, on view at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center, from Apr. 2 - May 31, 2013.

The modern quilt is simple, uncomplicated and contemporary. The Beaufort Modern Quilt Guild has 24 members who strive to achieve and build on this aesthetic. They are having their first exhibition in the gallery at ARTworks.

“We’ll have about 30 pieces that show how Modern quilters work,” said Rhonda Jordan, who owns Tabby Fabric & Studio, where the Beaufort Guild meets. “We’ve invited the Charleston and Greenville Guilds too, so the public will see a fantastic range of new designs. Modern quilters don’t follow patterns so much. They embrace asymmetry and negative space, not just rigid prints and structures. Machine-sewn binding is fine. The show isn’t a competition, but our way of displaying what quilting means here and now.” Some quilts and related creations will be for sale.

ARTworks is the community arts center of Beaufort, the coolest arts council in the Carolinas, and applies the many creative tools of the arts to strengthen artists, and enrich audiences, collectors, and visitors through high quality arts experiences and arts education programs 365 days a year.
