TROY — On Sunday, Sept. 27 at 2: p.m., join the Five in Fiber artists for some special insight into their series of Dayton Landmark quilts. This event is hosted by the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, 301 W. Main St., and is free and open to the public.
The presentation will feature the photographer, Ronnie Doyal, and three quilters, Pam Geisel, A. Sue DeSantis, and Carroll Schleppi. Ronnie will discuss how and why certain photos were selected for the series. The discussion will include an overview of the 13 quilts, highlighting special details and comparisons, followed by a step-by-step description of how two of the quilts were constructed from initial photo to completion. Several of the landmark quilts will be on display for the presentation. Questions will be welcomed on the Dayton Landmark quilts, or other quilts in the Five in Fiber show.
Five in Fiber is on display through Oct. 4. The exhibit features the work of regional artists, A. Sue DeSantis, Ronnie Doyal, Pam Geisel, Carroll Schleppi, and Lisa Quintana. Each of these artists brings her unique perspective and talent to the process of creating art quilts. Some employ traditional methods while others in the group use a multi-media approach.
