Coming to Light

December 10, 2023 - January 28, 2024

Artist Reception: December 10, 5-8 pm

Coming to Light is a new, juried exhibition of works by members of the Contemporary QuiltArt Association, a group of fiber artists from around Washington State. Diverse in their design styles, choices of media and working techniques, the artists are not restricted by traditional definitions of quilting, instead expressing their thoughts and feelings through the medium of quilting. 

The exhibition promises to bring brightness just as we enter the darkest days of the year. As the title suggests, the theme of the show is light in its many forms—from physical light emitted by heavenly bodies, fire and reflection to the illumination that comes with discovery, the uncovering of truth or a sense of uplift. The artists have interpreted this theme using a variety of materials and techniques, including hand-dying, painting, digitizing and stamping fabrics and incorporating various embellishments.

The exhibtion is presented in conjunction with the Winter Solstice Festival, scheduled Thursdays – Sundays December 14 -31, 2023. Celebrate in the cozy, festively decorated Wagner House while enjoying inspirational presentations of art, music, literature and poetry from diverse Solstice traditions.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the artwork, please contact Susan Warner at swarner@lakewoldgardens.org or (253) 970-9538.
