THE ART OF THE QUILT
featuring David M. Taylor, Denise Labadie,
Madeleine Vail and Jackie Grimaldi
SAM invites all writers to join the third annual collaboration of the visual arts and the written word, Ekphrasis 2020 in a creative writing competition. Ekphrastic writing is the use of words to comment on a piece of visual art. This year, writers’ imaginations will be sparked by the current exhibition The Art of the Quilt. Visit the Steamboat Art Museum where admission is free, write prose or poetry up to 750 words and submit the entry to the Steamboat Art Museum by the deadline of August 21, 5:30pm.
We are proud to present The Art of the Quilt at the Steamboat Art Museum. When this exhibition was originally scheduled, we never imagined how appropriate our timing would be as our community “re-opens”. Quilts, throughout history, have been used to comfort, protect, provide warmth, tell a story, add artistic charm, and in their creation, bring people together. Assembled from many pieces, layered and stitched, quilts embody the principal that the whole is stronger than its parts, an important reminder for all of us as we pull together to move forward.
Current Exhibition: The Art of the Quilt
June 26 through September 6, 2020
The exhibit features the work of internationally recognized fiber artists and teachers, David M. Taylor and Denise Labadie with Steamboat artists Madeleine Vail and Jackie Grimaldi. All artists have deep Colorado roots, coming together in Steamboat Springs, representing varied styles from traditional to contemporary in an explosion of colors, patterns, textures and design. Quilts available for purchase.
