Big Show in the Big Apple

Exciting News!!! Deborah Hartwick will be a featured Guest Artist of the American Folk Art Museum at the show Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts. This will be the largest exhibition of quilts ever held in New York City with the installation of 650 quilts on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose. The show runs from March 25-30, 2011 at the Park Avenue Armory and is FREE and open to the public.

 Deb (and I as her assistant) will be there from March 25-March 28 as part of the Museum's Gift Shop booth at the show. She has been asked to bring  some one-of-a-kind pieces specifically for the show designed in colors of red and white as well as her standard works.

In addition to a Thursday night Gala preceding the show the musuem will also present three special programs regarding the making of the show, a quilt conversation and history of red and white quilts. 

Below is a snippet of some of the beautiful antique quilts that will be on display.
We hope to see you there!
