Event Details

See an exhibition of contemporary quilts! A new exhibition, JOURNEYS: Quilts from the Contemporary QuiltArt Association and The Pacific Northwest African American Quilters, will be on view from March 16 through June 23, 2024, at the Washington State History Museum. The exhibition revolves around the theme of journeys of transformation—personal, cultural, and historical—captured in this collection of 30 contemporary quilts by artists from two local groups. Preview JOURNEYS at an opening reception on Friday, March 15, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM (free with registration). Quilters featured in the exhibition will be on hand to share insight into their inspirations and creative process.

Since 1986, The Contemporary QuiltArt Association has promoted expression through evolving fiber art styles, materials, and techniques. Pieces from the CQA combine traditional and non-traditional approaches, including painted, digitally printed, hand-dyed materials, and machine and hand-stitched surfaces in various shapes and sizes.

The Pacific Northwest African American Quilters is an organization that celebrates the cultural roots of quilting. The PNWAAQ has been sharing African American history with its members and their communities through the tradition of quilting for over 25 years.
