Quilts are coming off the beds and going up on the walls as fine art. More and more gallery art exhibitions are featuring art quilts alongside oil and acrylic paintings, sculptures, etc. As art quilts are gaining in acceptance and popularity, their value as art has been increasing as well. Fine art collectors are branching out into textiles as well and adding art quilts to their collections. These exhibition opportunities make it easy for collectors to see the artwork in person and purchase from the artist while patronizing their local galleries. As I am notified of jury results, I will be posting upcoming exhibitions here. For previous exhibition information featuring textile artist Jean M. Judd's artworks, go to the Recent Exhibitions page to see exhibition history for individual artworks.

The Stillwater Art Guild Gallery in Stillwater, Minnesota
will be hosting an invitational exhibition entitled “Still Water”. This
exhibition was conceived by textile artist Jean M. Judd of Cushing, Wisconsin in
celebration of the 50th anniversary of the St. Croix River being part
of the National Scenic Riverway system in the United States. She selected eight
artists to participate along with her in this exciting exhibition to run August
1 – 30, 2018. Artwork Ms. Judd has selected for inclusion in the exhibit
includes her Contaminated Water Series,
which will feature ten large scale works, including her newest addition to the
series, Reflections, which has not
been exhibited previously.
This exhibit will feature artists who work with artistic mediums
such as ceramics, wood, painting, photography, and textiles. Each artist has a
strong voice that makes their work stand out. They will be exploring the
concept of rivers and water and the historic town of Stillwater as it relates to them,
their environment, and their life experience.
The exhibition opens on August 1, 2018 and is open through August
30, 2018. The artist reception is August 3, 2018 from 5 to 8pm. There will also
