31 fiber artists use their individual talents to let their voices be heard. They remind us that THIS thing, idea, place, or part of our world should not be forgotten or undefended when at risk from intolerance, ignorance, indifference, or greed. They offer us intuitive responses, sorrows, desires to right things, to protect what may be disappearing. And they offer hope, a tender need to call out to the world to remember precious things in life. The show previewed in April 2018 in San Diego, California before coming to Chandler, Arizona.

Now in its twenty-third year, the Art Quilts exhibition at the Chandler Center for the Arts has grown from a regional quilt show to a respected vehicle for contemporary works. The exhibition draws entries from around the United States and Canada and allows thousands of visitors each year to experience quilting as an art form. This year’s juror is ASU Assistant Professor Erika Lynne Hanson, and the theme she has chosen is Artistic Ecologies. Starting with the definition of ecology as the interrelationship between any system and its environment, quilts in this exhibition will be inspired by the theme formally, conceptually, and narratively.

Reception: Friday, January 25, 2019, 6 - 8 p.m.
Pastel color palettes, uncommon vantage points, and attention to detail are the common threads between the paintings of Autumn Rose and Barbara Kemp Cowlin. Autumn Rose's varied line weights and flat perspectives transform her paintings of desert botanical still lives into airy abstractions, creating a peaceful plenitude in her otherworldly canvasses. Barbara Kemp Cowlin finds underappreciated details in the corners of domestic and public architecture, creating Spartan, angular compositions that feel simultaneously new and familiar. Together, both artists' distinctive points of view remind viewers that whether we are looking at abundance or scarcity, there is more to be seen if we only look harder.Find out more
