Name: Exhibit at PNW Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum: The Quilt Road: Contemporary Korean Quilts
Date: March 30, 2022 - June 26, 2022
Event Description:

This exhibition features artists who have completed their study of the “Quilt Specialist Course” of Sookmyung Women’s University Museum.  These artists have been invited to numerous exhibitions and have contributed significantly to the evolution of textile art and the foundation of Korean quilting.
The methods and materials utilized to work with textiles are becoming more diverse, and the demand for and execution of artistic production is gradually expanding beyond genres. You will discover the life of Korean quilting in a new light via the continuity of past, present, and future. 
Congratulations to Patti King, Misik Kim and their collaborators on their efforts for this exhibition.

As I looked at the pieces that Misik Kim and Patti King have selected for this exhibit, my immediate impression was a timely - and relevant - reminder.  Several of the first works I saw create stunning images using what appears to be thousands of very small bits of color, such as “The Winter Wind” and “Super Moon” – both gorgeous examples of this style.  Both are beautifully crafted reminders that each of us are part of a cohesive whole and what amazing things we can achieve together.
The Quilt Road: Korean Contemporary Quilts offers a unique journey of exploration into the world of Korean art.  Thank you to Misik Kim and Patti King for bringing us this remarkable exhibit. We are honored to be your host!
