Lecture From Linda Seward: MODERN VS. CONTEMPORARY QUILTS
This talk features the work of over 35 textile artists who are making exciting Contemporary and Modern art quilts. Linda will define what a Modern quilt is, and illustrate how it differs from a Contemporary quilt by comparing examples of similar styles/designs. By the end of the talk you’ll be able to differentiate between them quite easily. Photographs and detailed close-ups will explore the diversity of work being created today by both types of quilters.
Lecture Cost: Free for members and non-members
THIS MONTH: We’ll have a quick welcome before the lecture which will last about 45min with a Q&A afterwards, and then a bit of guild housekeeping before we leave.
