New show presents Modern Quadrilaterals

The November art display at the Bainbridge Public Library will feature Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild’s exhibit titled “Modern Quadrilaterals.”

The exhibition opens during the First Friday Art Walk, with an artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 at the library.

For the past few years, Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild assigns a challenge in which members are given a simple theme to interpret in any way they would like.

The only requirements are that the quilts should be 24 inches or less and that the quilter incorporates one or more characteristics of “modern quilts” as suggested and outlined by the Modern Quilt Guild. Examples of these characteristics could be the use of asymmetry, improvisation, negative space, simplicity and minimalism, alternative block structure, reinterpreted tradition, inspiration of modern art and architecture, and a distinct esthetic of colors whether it be the use of bold colors, solid colors, graphic prints and/or neutrals in white and gray.

The show will be in the meeting room during all of November and on the library website at www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org.
