Exhibit of art quilts to open
The Stairwell Gallery at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington will present a show featuring art quilts designed and sewn by Danbury quilt artist Norma Schlager Nov. 24 through Jan. 5.
An opening reception will be held Nov. 25 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the library on Wykeham Road.
The artist draws her inspiration from many places including nature, travel, architecture or just the pure love of color. Her quilts are usually distinguished by their use of saturated hues and vivid contrast.
Most of her work features her own hand-dyed fabrics, surface design and extensive free-motion machine quilting.
Schlager’s award-winning work has been exhibited in numerous shows and exhibits, nationally and internationally, and has been published in many books and magazines.
The Wykeham Road library is open Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call 860-868-7586.
