The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America

Crealdé will be one of the first domestic hosts for this internationally traveled exhibition, The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America, presenting 14 quilts in varying styles by leading quilt artists from across the United States. The exhibition, originally sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, toured five major cities in China before coming to the United States. Folklorist Teresa Hollingsworth and curator Katy Malone of South Arts in Atlanta selected artists from 14 different states; the artists featured boast diverse backgrounds and paths that led them to quiltmaking. Artists include traditional Native American quilter Bonnie LeBeau, from South Dakota; Dottie Moore of North Carolina, a longtime fiber artist who depicts scenes from nature; Erick Wolfmeyer of Iowa, whose quilts are inspired by the Midwest landscape; and Louisiana Bendolph from Alabama, following the 19th-century tradition of Gee’s Bend quilts. As a whole, the exhibition highlights a range of quilting styles and techniques while providing an opportunity for assorted audiences to connect with American culture through our shared love of textile arts. The exhibition is a program of Exhibits USA and the National Endowment for the Arts. This two-venue exhibition will also feature eight to 10 locally created quilts representing the talent of Mid-Florida quilting artists and will be curated by folklorist and author Dr. Kristin Congdon. The exhibition will be shared between the Alice & William Jenkins Gallery on the Crealdé main campus and the Hannibal Square Heritage Center. The Sum of Many Parts will be enhanced by educational opportunities for adults and children, including visiting artist workshops, the inauguration of Crealdé’s state-of-the-art longarm quilting machine, a resource library and film screenings. The opening-night reception from 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, at the Alice & William Jenkins Gallery, will be followed by a continued reception with live music from 8:30-10 p.m. at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
