Wotiz Gallery: Not Your Grandma's Quilt Show by Artist Barbara Graceffa : [ MILTONPL ]

From 9/1 to 10/31, there will be a lovely exhibit of quilts shown in the Wotiz Gallery of the Milton Public Library in a display called “Not Your Grandma’s Quilt Show.”  As a teacher, artist and quilter, Barbara Graceffa is self-taught and has received several awards for her work, including “Best in Show – Blue Ribbon Quilt” at the Marshfield Fair.  She is a teacher at the New England Quilt Museum located in Lowell, MA, and also teaches many different classes about design, decluttering, home staging, and more, including having presented some virtual talks at our library.  This month’s gallery collection will show 20 or so traditional and contemporary quilts and wall hangings which Barbara started exhibiting in 2018.  Her pieced and applique wall quilts are simple in design, but they are unique in that her choice of fabrics and how she pairs them, transforms them, and sometimes embellishes them makes her work stand out from other quilters’ art.   In her first juried show, her art quilt “Out on a Limb” was chosen by The Brush Gallery to appear in its annual art quilt exhibition.  This upcoming Wotiz exhibit is her fourth solo display in the past 6 years, and she is a member of 4 quilt guilds from Abington to Arlington.    She is also a talented columnist for the Quincy Sun and works with clients as an interior decorator.  The artist is currenlty working on her first book, If Picasso was a Quilter: Designing Outside the Block" in which she will share photos and instructions of the many different methods she uses in her quilts.

Ms. Graceffa’s quilting journey started down a well-travelled path 40 years ago but diverged “somewhere ages and ages hence.”  Trading traditional patchwork bed coverings for artistic wall quilts, she now looks at design, creativity, technique, color, fabric and embellishment through a different lens, and as Robert Frost says in his poem “The Road Not Taken?” “…and that has made all the difference.”  There will also be a free and open reception held on  Wednesday, 9/14/22, from 6-8 PM in the Gallery, so that you may come meet the artist in person and view her lovely collection of art quilts.  For more information about this event, please Email jhlady@ocln.org  or call the Reference Dept.
