Preserving, teaching, recognizing, and celebrating current quilting trends.
As our name proclaims, the Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum wants to recognize and celebrate our regional and local heritage and influences. Throughout the southeast many communities developed with a similar story of textile production. We want to share that heritage by highlighting our own history.
The QUILT aspect of our mission creates a triangle: to preserve, to teach, and to recognize and celebrate current quilting trends.
The show will feature Susan Lenz’s installation works of the Cocoon and the Clothesline.
The Cocoon is a large-scale fiber installation that transforms a gallery space into a temporary, site specific haven for storytelling. It challenges viewers to make a plan for their family’s precious textile possessions.
The Clothesline Installation (2020)
The Clothesline Installation is a visual appreciation of taking care of a household and doing the tasks that are fundamental for quality living, especially during the dark days of a pandemic.
