First Friday Art Walk

"Modern Quadrilaterals" with the Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild

Please join us for the November First Friday Art Walk reception at the Library for the exhibit by the Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild. This exhibit "Modern Quadrilaterals" is the result of a challenge to explore shape in the form of quadrilaterals. Quadrilaterals have 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices, and more complexly, its many forms include square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, kite, and trapezoid. These challenges are a wonderful way to encourage members to experiment with new ways to approach their quilting and design skills.

Podcast about Exhibit
B.I. Modern Quilt Guild
For the past few years, our guild, Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild, assigns a challenge in which members are given a simple theme to interpret in any way they would like. The only requirements are that the quilts should be 24” or less and that the quilter incorporates one or more characteristics of ‘modern quilts’ as suggested and outlined by our national umbrella guild, the Modern Quilt Guild. Examples of these characteristics could be the use of asymmetry, improvisation, negative space, simplicity and minimalism, alternative block structure, reinterpreted tradition, inspiration of modern art and architecture, and a distinct aesthetic of colors whether it be the use of bold colors, solid colors, graphic prints and/or neutrals in white and gray.
