Annual Art Quilt Exhibit at Aullwood: The Good Earth


From left, my quilt "Sometimes I Dream of Flying," "Lunch Time" (top) and "Apologies to Grandma Moses" (bottom) both by Fran LaSalle, and "Good Earth" by Kathryn Wagar Wright. (Click on the photo to see it larger.)

These are just some of the art quilts in the 20th Annual Art Quilt Exhibit at the Aullwood Audubon Center's Marie S. Aull education center. This show has 42 amazing art quilts submitted by art quilters from across the country. The local art quilt group, the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network has quilts by Debra Bently, Ann Diller, Suzanne Kirchner, Fran LaSalle, Lisa Quintana, Carroll Schleppi, and Maxine Thomas.

I wasn't able to attend the opening reception and this is the last week of the show. The last day to see it is this Sunday, Aug. 19. The address is 1000 Aullwood Rd., in Dayton, Ohio. The center is open Mon.-Sat. from 9 am-5 pm and Sun. from 1-5 pm. Admission is $4 but that allows access to the show, the education center and all of the grounds.

If you can't make it to the show, Lisa Quintana has posted several blog posts about the quilts along with many wonderful photos.
