The Labour of Art

Saturday, December 1, 2018 to Wednesday, January 30, 2019

The Mulcahy Family Gallery

Quilts are not just a matter of needlework. They are a form of art that inspires major movements in the western art world. This exhibition will be primarily composed of quilts, patterns, and archival documents from OMAH's collection. As a counterbalance, the exhibition will include quilts by contemporary fibre artists. Quilts are not just rooted in domestic and feminine history, they ultimately tell a story about collaboration, community, and aesthetic beauty.
