Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry Retrospective including “30 Quilts for 30 Years,” quilts and wearable art.
WMQFA Virginia Avery Collection Guest Curator: Rebecca Putzer
Join featured artist Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry on March 25 for a Gallery Talk at 10 a.m. and a Seminar “Eye-Dazzling Foundation Piecing in a Free-form Curve” from 1:30-4:30 p.m.! Click on “Education” and then “Classes & Workshops” for more information.
Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry is internationally recognized for her award-winning fine-art quilts, which have appeared in hundreds of national and international exhibitions, collections, and publications. Honors include 100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century, Silver Star (lifetime achievement) Award, and selection as one of the thirty most influential quiltmakers in the world. Caryl has lectured and taught in eleven countries around the world and continues to share her knowledge through her publications and her website. (www.bryerpatch.com).
“30 Quilts for 30 Years” celebrates Caryl’s thirtieth anniversary of making her first art quilt in 1983. The thirty quilts, all of which are new, revisit many of the themes of my past, award-winning work, and introduce new themes. Although there is diversity in style, the uniform size of the quilts (30″ x 30″) pulls the exhibit together visually. All of these quilts are made with Caryl’s one-of-a-kind hand painted fabric, or fabric from the various collections she has designed for Benartex, which are based on her original hand-dyed and painted fabrics.
The WMQFA’s own Virginia Avery Collection of 26 wearable art pieces will make its premier as part of “Color In Motion.” Avery (1912-2012) was a member of the Quilter’s Hall of Fame. She was a self-taught artist who made her first dress at age 12 and drew inspiration from the world around her. Mirabella Magazine named her one of their 1,000 most influential women in the 1990s. Avery lectured and taught workshops worldwide, and her wearable art could be viewed on runways internationally.
Peter McMasters’ textured scarves, wraps and vests will join this exhibit. Says McMasters, “A good day for me is when a group of people come into my booth or store and have fun trying on items that jump out of their typical every day wardrobe. My art allows them to have fun with decorating themselves.”
