Description: The studio art quilts in this exhibit were made over the course of more than two decades from the talented hands of four different artists: Paula Nadelstern, Katherine Knauer, Amy Orr, and Robin Schwalb. The exhibition celebrates the “Slow Art” movement of artists who embrace “handmade” as a mantra, blending traditional process with modern techniques and assemblage. The show revels in process, rejoices in community, and celebrates artwork created in “as much time as it takes.” Semper Tedium spans a broad variety of artistic styles, from abstraction to representational imagery, and the use of materials that range from fabric to credit cards.
