September 28 – December 31, 2012 in the Maslow Galleries
Sightlines is a contemporary art quilt installation in which fourteen artists were invited to create an installation of artworks featuring a sightline linking all the artwork in the exhibit. Each artist chose her own themes and created five to eight artworks, including four 8×8″ linking pieces, covering a ten foot wide space. Perhaps the required continuous line provided provocation, both conscious and unconscious, to the artists to focus on the interaction of time, personal history, and memory. The artists explore themes such as consumerism, contemplation, randomness, emotion, triumph, tragedy, and making connections. The exhibit is on loan from SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Association) and marks the second time that the Everhart Museum has worked with this group of artists. Financial assistance for this exhibit is provided by Gertrude Hawk Chocolates, Inc.
