The Sacred Threads exhibition opened this past weekend. This is a show dedicated to quilts about joy, inspiration, spirituality, healing, grief, peace, and brotherhood. Over 300 pieces by artists from all over the country, fill the exhibit space adjacent to the sanctuary in Floris United Methodist Church in Herndon, Virginia. Naturally there are a variety of styles and stories represented among these quilts, but each piece oozes of passion for its subject matter and the artform itself. I only wish that the venue was larger and brighter, it was difficult to maneuver through the narrow walkways, and sometimes impossible to step back and view a piece from afar. I have featured a small selection of my favorites here, including my own Reverence / Dogwood. I am truly honored to be included!
If you are in the Washington DC are I recommend a visit! You can visit the website for more information. I also believe that part of the exhibit will be traveling around the country starting this fall.
