American Patchwork Art Exhibit
June 2–25, 2023
Opening Reception: Friday, June 2 from 7–9pm
The United States is a patchwork of 50 states, 1 federal district, 5 major territories, and various minor islands. This country has beautiful beaches and majestic mountains, bustling cities and quiet towns, pastoral ranches and farms, vast natural beauty and amazing technology, and so much more. The American Patchwork art exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery highlights the diversity of cultures, landscapes, and artistic styles that make up the American experience.
Join us for the opening reception on Friday, June 2 between 7-9pm to meet curator TJ Feeley and the artists. Mark your calendar now or set a reminder through Eventbrite. Developed by local artists, the exhibit includes a mix of artforms (including textiles, mosaics, and photographs) and broadly explores and captures the patchwork spirit of the United States and her people. Each artist revealed in their own way what it means to be an American in the 21st century, contributing to the patchwork experience of over 330 million people who make up America today.
