The Briscoe Center presents Boldly Graphic: Two-Color Quilts from the Winedale Quilt Collection. Six quilts will be on exhibit at the Briscoe-Garner Museum. The exhibit is free and open to the public, running April 21-May 5, 2018. Exhibit hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 9a.m. to 4 p.m. American quiltmakers have long been drawn toward two-color quilts. Usually made with pieces of a single solid-color fabric sewn onto a white background, such quilts are highly graphic in nature, emphasizing pattern rather than a pleasing mix of various colors. The Briscoe Center’s Winedale Quilt Collection contains many such quilts, both pieced and appliquéd, dating from 1845. This exhibit brings these unique quilts together for the publics viewing pleasure. For more information please call 830-278-5018.
