Paper Quilt Project: Collaborations in Contemporary Craft

October 15 – December 4, 2011

Paper Quilt Project: Collaborations in Contemporary Craft is a project conceived of by Bay Area artist Lena Wolff, organized around the idea of collaboration and the democratic folk art phenomenon of quilt making. For the exhibition, 14 artist teams were invited to make works on paper and installations based on the quilt with underlying themes of interdependence and interconnectivity.

A special addendum to this exhibition is a companion show at Traywick Contemporary featuring new work by Lena Wolff and several artists from the Paper Quilt Project. Visit traywick.com for information.
