Main Gallery: 
Quilts that Celebrate Nature from RMQM’s Permanent Collection

Join us for Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum’s exhibition that celebrates nature. We have compiled a group of historic and contemporary quilts from our permanent collection all relating to the exhibit’s theme Nature, Flora, Fauna, Earth. Antique quilts were selected from the Sharee and Murray Newman collection, art quilts were chosen from the RMQM Rooted in Tradition collection. Others that fit the theme were chosen from the permanent collection, at large. These include the Freedom Quilt from Japan commemorating and honoring the victims and families affected by the tragedy of 9/11. Its message and beautiful floral artistry are breathtaking. We are pleased to include Rebirth, a contemporary art quilt by Scott Murkin of Asheboro, North Carolina. This quilt reminds us of the devastation of the Hayman Fire in 2002.

Northeast Gallery:
Art Quilters with Altitude | Elevated Threads

Art Quilters with Altitude present a group exhibit entitled Elevated Threads as a way to ponder how their art helped them redirect their focus and elevated their sense of joy during the pandemic. They left the “blues” behind as they played with color in their studios. They embraced the “blue glow” and the available technology in order to still see each other, and took every opportunity to gaze at the rich, blue sky to remind them that some things still stay the same. It is the hope of the artists that their artwork will cause you, the viewer, to stop and reflect on how blue affected you in 2020 and how you embraced it. The art quilts chosen for this exhibit show off the unique and diverse talents of each artist.
