Among the exhibits debuting at this year's
Quilt Festival in Long Beach is "An Exquisite Moment," a diverse and
inspiring collection of quilts from Dinner at Eight Artists, and curated
by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison.
Each quilt in the exhibit offers the artist's interpretation or
representation of one of life's "exquisite moments" (a personal
milestone, the birth of a child, the realization of a dream, a moment
shared with a lover or friend, a treasured memory) in 24" x
While the common theme (and size) ties the collection together, the
quilts vary significantly in terms of style and technique. So, Festival
attendees get a chance to see how asingleidea
can inspire amultitude of differing, incredible works.
