GUNS: Loaded Conversations

​An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun
ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of
violence in America. This exhibition from Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA)
seeks to engage viewers of differing opinions in a thoughtful way.

Just for the Fun of It: Quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection

Guest Curator, Gerald E. Roy, presents quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection that
have never been shown before. Best described by an expression from the
Pennsylvania Dutch, Amish, and Mennonites--”jus for purdy”-- these quilts exhibit a
particular point of view on the part of the maker. Some defy the conventional norms
of their time, while others present a unique use of color.

In the words of Mr. Roy, “I am grateful to have been given the chance of sharing
these quilts and look forward to reassuring those, who make quilts ‘Just For The
Fun Of It,’ that they are adding to a rich quilt making tradition.”
