The Fabric of Time artistic quilt exhibit opens at Wayland’s Abraham Art Gallery

PLAINVIEW — The Fabric of Time, an exhibit featuring artistic quilts and designs, is now on display at Wayland Baptist University’s Abraham Art Gallery in Plainview.

The exhibit, featuring works created by local and regional artists in the Caprock Art Quilters group, opened Monday, Oct. 2, and will be on display through Dec. 15.

The Fabric of Time highlights individual artistic paths of each of members of the art quilter group, allowing them to show their progression, exploration of techniques, styles, and themes over time, and unique perspectives, while creating a rich body of work. Many of the creators have competed regionally and nationally in juried shows, consistently winning awards and recognition, as well as being published in fiber arts books and magazines. Select fabric art quilts are available to purchase in the gallery.

The exhibition includes the artistic works of Valerie Komkov Hill, Cinde Ebeling, Terrie Eads, Ann Hicks, Marian Ann Montgomery, Sandra Stephenson, Muff Fregia, Jean C. R. Grimes, Ellie Kreneck, and Nancy K. Fisher.
