Enter into the fascinating world of quilt art with the Pilgrim/Roy collection at this opening exhibition reception. With 60 vibrant examples from a collection recognized as one of the world’s finest, “Quilts and Color” abounds with unique expressions of the quilter’s art, chosen with a contemporary eye for color and pattern. The exhibition of quilts from this renowned collection is the first to explore how, over five decades, trained artists Paul Pilgrim and Gerald Roy searched out and collected quilts with bold, eye-popping designs that echoed the work of mid-20th century Abstract Expressionist and Op Artists.
