SEQUIM—The National Park Fiber Arts Exhibit “Piecing Together a Changing Planet,” will be on exhibit at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 West Cedar Street, May 7 – June 30, 2017. The display has been touring the country since December 2014. This is the only stop in the Pacific Northwest for the national exhibit.

The juried show of 26 art quilts was created by artists in Florida as a way to highlight a few of the many ways that America’s 401 National Parks are being impacted by climate change, water pollution, air pollution, and other human-caused phenomena.

Maya Schonenberger, the exhibit curator said, “the artists’ goal is to help open people’s eyes to the beauty of nature that surrounds them, and share their concern for its loss.”

The artworks were created by members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), a 3000-member national organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications. Far from utilitarian quilts, traditionally used as bedcoverings, art quilts focus on layering, “thread painting,” and graphic design, as well as stitching and piecing.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Sequim’s City Arts Advisory Commission (CAAC) in partnership with the Olympic National Park.
