Art 31 at the Maitland Art Museum

Back in March, our Guild was invited to participate in Maitland Art Museum’s Art 31 program for a month-long celebration highlighting the fiber arts. 

It was a great opportunity for the Guild and we had so much fun talking to visitors at the historic Waterhouse Residence about the art AND history of quilting.  We flew quilts on the big wrap-around porch as beacons for anyone visiting the park on campus to come in and find out more as we demonstrated the way we practice the art form today.

We even started a group quilt while we were there as we learned about the history of the home and presented it to the Museum as a celebration of community partnership (if you missed the gifting presentation – see the video here and here).

And now, we’ve been invited back!  This time for two days only but during the 42nd Maitland Rotary Art Festival, November 17-18, 2018 at Lake Lily Park.  If you missed the chance to sign up in March, or want experience it again, here’s your opportunity!  Follow the link to Signupgenius to register.
