Indy Modern Quilt Guild hosts inaugural exhibition at Garfield Park Arts Center

You can see the talents of greater Indianapolis quilters all month long as the Indy Modern Quilt Guild debuts its 2021 Exhibition at Garfield Park Arts Center through July 31st. Lisa Parker and Mary Beth Morse of the Indiana Modern Quilt Guild joined us today with more of what you can expect from the event. Here’s more from them.

The show features around 50 works from over 20 artists, highlighting various aspects of modern quilting including minimalism, asymmetry, improvisational piecing, negative space, bright and graphic pallets, and modern traditionalism.

“Modern quilting brings a fresh perspective to traditional quilting with fun and bright colors, bold graphic prints, and simplicity in layout and design,” said Sacha Brady, Exhibition coordinator and IMQG member. “The quilts demonstrate a colorful and wide variety of styles, approaches, and designs.”

This is the fourth quilt show for the guild displaying the interpretations of the conventions of modern quilting in their pieces, but the largest show IMQG has undertaken.

“We are excited for our new partnership with the Indy Modern Quilt Guild and to introduce our audience to the concept of modern quilting.” said Kavita Mahoney, Manager of the Garfield Park Arts Center. “This exhibition will be a unique opportunity for guests to engage with the medium of quilting in a completely different way.”

The Indy MQG Exhibition 2021 will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays in July from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Garfield Park Arts Center on Conservatory Drive in Indianapolis. Guild members will be on hand opening night, July 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., to mingle with guests and answer questions.

Started as an online forum in 2010 for modern sewists to connect and create together, no matter ages, skill levels, or quilting backgrounds, the guild joined the global Modern Quilt Guild organization in 2013.

IMQG plans to resume face to face meetings and programing in the coming months.

This event is free and face masks are required.
