by the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild of Winston-Salem
Opening Reception 5-7pm on Friday, October 5th.
Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild of Winston-Salem is made up of approximately 130 women and men interested in promoting and supporting quilting and related fiber arts. Members are dedicated to spreading their enthusiasm to the community through charitable donations of quilts on a regular basis to young patients at Brenner’s Children’s Hospital and senior citizens in assisted living facilities. We also make several hundred nap blankets every year for children in Equity Plus Schools, share our work and expand our skills at monthly meetings, hold exhibitions and present a bi-annual quilt show.
This collection, containing a selection of quilts made in fall and Halloween colors, is notable for the remarkably different interpretations of the theme. These include a broad variety of quilt designs from traditional, to art and modern quilts, which range in size from wall hangings (measuring approximately 20 x 20 inches) to 80 x 90 inch bed quilts.
(On display in the Welborn Gallery through the end of November)
The Welborn Gallery was named after Marion and Jewell Welborn of Boonville for the generous lead gift they made to the Center’s capital campaign.
The Welborns gifted the final funds needed to close the campaign and make it possible for the Yadkin Arts Council to open the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center.
Our Welborn Gallery warmly greets every visitor to the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center as soon as you walk in the building. Our Welborn Gallery is designed to expose residents and visitors to continual and varied 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional pieces of art. You can always find something to inspire and challenge you with every visit.
