In-Gallery: Quilting Bee with Wataru Tominaga

June 11–13, 18 & 20, 1–4 PM

Fashion designer and artist Wataru Tominaga will transform the gallery space into a sewing room. Over the course of five days, a collective of local artists will join Tominaga in crafting a large patchwork quilt, which will be exhibited as an artwork upon completion. Participating artists will learn intricate hand stitching techniques from Liz Leral, the executive director of Quilting for Community, a non-profit organization dedicated to offering a free, inclusive, creative space to learn the art of quilting. This collaborative project challenges traditional gender roles in craft and artistry, encouraging visitors to reflect on the intersections of fashion, craftsmanship, and fine art.

Participating artists in the Quilting Bee include Mathias AdamJonathan EdwardsTristan LahozMariam MujahidahToban NicholsCorey PembertonJulian Rich, and Keigo Sato.
