In Stitches: Seriously Humorous Art Quilts Year XXI – Juried by Marla Hattabaugh

Nov. 18, 2016 – Jan. 7, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, Nov. 18, 7–9 p.m.

The 21st annual Art Quilt exhibit held at the Chandler Center for the Arts in 2016-17 will feature the theme of In Stitches: Seriously Humorous Art Quilts. Artists were asked to submit artworks designed to portray the concept of humor through an elevated or alternative outlook as opposed to a traditional perspective, and were given ample freedom to experiment with different ideas of humor and amusement. ‘The exhibit should be a blast of color and fun!’, proclaimed juror Marla Hattabaugh.

Marla Hattabaugh, this year’s juror, is a passionate quilter. She has shown her work in multiple exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe, and has been involved in artist organizations such as the Arizona Quilters Guild, Arizona Designer Craftsmen, and the Quilt/Surface Design Symposium.

“As a quilter I have a passion for quilting. I take my role as a quilter and creator very seriously. I work to keep learning how to make each artwork the best it can be. On the other hand, humor helps me be healthy in mind and heart. That is why I chose this theme. Daily laughing and loving enables us to be happy," said Marla Hattabaugh.

The Chandler Center for the Arts is proud to present the 21st annual Art Quilt exhibition titled “In Stitches: Seriously Humorous Art Quilts Year XXI,” beginning Friday, November 18, with an opening Artists’ Reception from 7-9 P.M. in the Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.
