Luke Haynes will speak on his own experience and the relevance of quilting. LUKE is an artist to watch in the modern quilt movement. Subverting the traditional quilting form by integrating modern concepts, his art transforms the comfortably familiar into the visually evocative. Luke Haynes was born and raised across the American South. With a formal training in art and architecture at Cooper Union, New York, Haynes continues to experiment with quilting art while exploring art and architecture across the globe.
A chance encounter with a box of fabric remnants sparked Mr. Haynes' imagination. His first quilt, measuring 7′ x 10′, led him through years of experimentation and improvements over the 11 years that he has been quilting. Further honing his style, Mr. Haynes developed a system to piece manageable parts into a larger whole, applying a modern design sense to a familiar process.
Open to all one-day or weekend pass holders. Light refreshments served and beer/wine $5-6. Please RSVP when purchasing your ticket.
