In the Baucus Gallery: Quilt National is a national juried exhibition intended to demonstrate the transformations taking place in the world of quilting. Its purpose is to carry the definition of quilting far beyond its traditional parameters and to promote quiltmaking as what it always has been - an art form.
The works in Quilt National display a reverence for the lessons taught by the makers of the heritage quilts. Many of the works hold fast to the traditional methods of piecing and patching. At the same time, Quilt National artists are intrigued by the challenge of expanding the boundaries of traditional quilt-making by utilizing the newest materials and technologies. These innovative works generate strong emotional responses in the viewer while at the same time fulfilling the creative need of the artist to make a totally individual statement.
