Red Rocks Community College Presents “Reflections” Quilt Exhibit

Fiber artists reflect on culture, nature, personal experience, politics, race, gender and art

 

LAKEWOOD, CO – Red Rocks Community College is currently hosting a fiber exhibit by Front Range Contemporary Quilters. “Reflections,” juried by Marcia Young, editor and publisher of FiberArtNow magazine, reflects how culture, nature, personal experience, politics, race, and gender influence art. This reflection is cultivated, explored, and expressed in the work of the artist.  

Almost 150 pieces were entered into the show and 45 were chosen for the exhibit. In addition, Deborah Dell, Curator of RRCC’s art gallery, invited works from three major three-dimensional fiber artists.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, June 9 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit is on display in the Susan K. Arndt Gallery at RRCC’s Lakewood campus (west entrance/lower level) now until September 1. Gallery hours are Monday - Friday 7 a.m.–10 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday 7 a.m.–6 p.m.
