UNT student artwork installed at the 2020 Dallas Quilt Show

In Stitches, CVAD Students show their art at the Dallas Quilt Show

The 2020 Dallas Quilt Show featured artwork created by CVAD students who took the fall 2019 interdisciplinary topics course, In Stitches, ASTU 3000, taught by Amie Adelman, professor, Department of Studio Art. Although the March 13-15 show, presented by the Quilter's Guild of Dallas, Inc. at Dallas Market Hall, was cut short due to COVID-19 health considerations, it was not closed until after all the art was installed.

Participating students in Adelman's semester-long course were introduced to hand-embroidery, piecing, machine-quilting and gained additional experience quilting on the APQS Millennium Long Arm Quilting Machine, a computerized longarm quilting machine in CVAD's Textile Fabrication Lab. The longarm quilting machine was purchased in 2017 with support from the $10,000 Helen Hibbs Endowment Fund grant awarded by the Quilter's Guild of Dallas. 

The activity supports the mission of CVAD by fostering art-based studio practices outside of CVAD. The students were required to provide images of their artwork with an image list, as well as install and de-install the exhibition.
