PROMOTING THE ART OF QUILTING IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA LOWCOUNTRY
Program: "Traditional Meets Contemporary"
From her background as a curator of the exhibition "Quilts Uncovered: Treasures from the Genesee Country Village and Museum", Parallax Views" and "Quilts 20/20" Pat Pauly gives an expansive look at the long history of quilt making, and its change and rebirth in the twenty-first century in art quilts. Presenting over 400 images in the span of an hour, she takes a fast-paced look at the craft that has endured in America for nearly 250 years. Hold on to your seats.
Speaker: Pat Pauly
Known for her improvisational techniques, Pat Pauly uses bold color and unusual juxtapositions of printed and painted fabric. Her workshops on the contemporary art quilt carry the same qualities as her work - energized, spontaneous and artistic. With a mastery of diverse construction techniques, Pat uses textiles as a medium of choice.
With works that carry a graphic, color-saturated palette using her hand printed fabric, Pat Pauly's fiber art is seen around the world. Her textile work began in the early 1980s and was first accepted in quilt National '83, and has continued being shown in major exhibition. Her fiber art's distinction is with using a strong abstraction of natural forms and complex color combinations. Her work is in both private and public collections. Her lectures are fast paced, funny and often speak on the intersection of traditional quilt arts with contemporary fiber art.
