Yellow Springs Quilters

At Several Local Exhibitions

Local quilters Pam Geisel, Lori Gravley, and Fran LaSalle recently participated in a group quilting project with other members of the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network. Photographs were taken of Dayton landmarks and then the photos were divided into pieces with each quilter taking a different piece. The finished quilts are now hanging together at the Schuster Performing Arts Center in downtown Dayton. The quilts will be on display through June 24.

Pam’s quilt “Sometimes I Dream of Flying” and Fran’s quilts “Apologies to Grandma Moses” and “Lunch Time” are also included in the Aullwood Audubon Center’s annual art quilt exhibit. This year’s theme is “The Good Earth” and the exhibit runs from June 23 through August 19 in the Marie S. Aull Education Center. The quilts can be viewed Mondays through Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm and on Sundays from 1 to 5 pm. Admission to the center is $4 and includes access to all of the trails. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, June 24 from 2:30 to 4 pm.

Pam and Fran also have quilts in Rosewood’s annual juried landscape competition “The View.” Pam’s quilt “Early Morning Nine Patch – Montana Sky” and Fran’s “Wagon Wheel” can be seen at the Rosewood Arts Centre Galleries in Kettering from June 11 through July 6. The galleries are open Mondays through Thursdays from 8 am to 9 pm, Fridays 8 am to 6 pm, and Satrudays from 9 am to 3 pm. The opening reception will be held this Sunday, June 10 from 2 to 4 pm. Sherraid Scott, a local printmaker, and Roger Smith, a local painter, also have pieces in this show.
