Join us in a gallery space in Chelsea near the Whitney Museum for a very special collaborative event with the Piecework Collective, an annual exhibition that brings together the work of textile artists from around the world. “The object of the exhibition is to showcase the work of a contemporary quilt community, a community united by a love of the craft and who all feel a strong connection to its history.” We’ll hear ten-minute talks from artists Season Evans, Coulter Fussell, Lesley Gold, and Heidi Parkes followed by a Q&A session. Speakers start at 7:00pm. White wine, sparkling/still water and light snacks will be served. Come out after our Main Event at FIT to unwind, greet friends and meet other artists! www.PieceworkCollective.com. An easy trip via cab (approx. 13 min), walk (1 mile) or subway (#1 train–approx. 15 min).
