Event Description Oceanside Museum of Art presents Quilt Visions 2008: Contemporary Expressions, one of the most prestigious art quilt exhibitions in the world. Organized by Quilt San Diego/Quilt Visions, this exhibition was juried by a distinguished panel who selected 41 quilts from 586 entries. It is especially exciting this year to feature the work of 20 artists who are appearing in this biennial exhibition for the first time. Quilt Visions 2008: Contemporary Expressions is on view from November 9, 2008 through March 1, 2009 with an opening reception November 8, 2008 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. OMA’s receptions are known for their party atmosphere complete with wine and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres prepared by OMA’s own Culinary Arts Council. Admission to the reception is $8. Members of the museum enjoy complimentary admission as a benefit of membership. Jurors were Judith Content, an award-winning quilt artist and president of Studio Art Quilt Associates; Mary Anne Jordan, Professor of Textiles and Design at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, and a nationally recognized quilt artist; and Don Bacigalupi, president and director of the Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo Ohio. They deserve high praise for choices that consider not only craftsmanship but the broad range of styles reflected in contemporary art quilts. Quilt Visions board member and exhibition coordinator, Charlotte Bird, is to be congratulated along with Quilt Visions President, Ann Olsen for their commitment and professionalism in organizing all aspects of the exhibition production. The Quilt San Diego board members and volunteers have shown continued dedication to this dynamic art form contributing to its important role in contemporary art.
