KALEIDOSCOPE - the very word promises surprise and magic, change and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of color and shape into a complex, coherent and unique whole. This slide lecture traces my evolving quilt series in which the multifaceted, luminous and random nature of a kaleidoscope is explored on a quilt's flat surface.
Celebrated quilter, and member of the Manhattan Quilters Guild, Paula Nadelstern, will join us via Zoom for a virtual lecture on Friday, August 6th at 6:00pm CDT. Tickets are just $10!
This lecture can be viewed via Zoom. Quilt guilds wishing to view the program as a group can do so for $75. If you purchase the ‘in home’ viewing ticket or the ‘guild watch party’ but are unable to attend live, a recording will be provided to you after the lecture which can be accessed at a later date.
Paula Nadelstern's quilts have achieved international recognition for their innovative and complex designs inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images. Included in the Twentieth Century's 100 Best American Quilts, her designs have inspired products including the vast carpet in the Hilton Americas hotel in Houston, TX, and were showcased in the American Folk Art Museum's first one person exhibition highlighting the work of a contemporary quilt artist (2009). In addition to numerous awards, she has been a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts and The Bronx Council on the Arts. She is the author of Kaleidoscopes & Quilts, Snowflakes & Quilts, Puzzle Quilts: Simple Blocks, Complex Fabric, Paula Nadlestern's Kaleidoscope Quilts: An Artist's Journey Continues, Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Workbook and FABRICADABRA: Simple Quilts, Complex Fabric.
