Quilt Visions 2012: Brainstorms is the 12th international juried exhibition presented by the Visions Art Museum: Contemporary Quilts + Textiles (VAM). This exhibition will, for the first time, be mounted in the Visions Art Museum's own gallery space in San Diego, California. The jurors will select work that exemplifies innovation in quilting and surface design techniques as well as excellence in composition and craftsmanship. A full color catalog will be produced for the exhibition. Awards will be given from arts organizations and collectors who appreciate and support contemporary quilt art.
Kate Lenkowsky is an independent scholar, freelance writer and quiltmaker. In 2008, Indiana University Press published her award winning book, Contemporary Quilt Art: An Introduction and Guide, which has become the definitive source for contemporary quilts and artists. She studies the connections between the textile arts and other art media, and the ways in which artists, particularly contemporary quiltmakers, use the language and traditions of cloth to engage modern audiences.
