BROCKTON, MA.- Fuller Craft Museum presents Nancy Crow: Crossroads Continuing – New and Recent Quilts, from Jan. 30—April 19, 2010. The dazzling art quilts of Nancy Crow, largely considered the founder of the contemporary art quilting movement, have transformed a tradition-bound medium into one of bold improvisation, composition and technical innovation. Her masterful fabric cutting and piecing are done without controlled grids and patterns, using a more improvisational approach. This exhibition, in Fuller Craft’s Merton Tarlow and Lampos galleries, presents her asymmetrical designs using elegant hand-dyed fabrics of highly saturated color. More than 30 of Crow’s quilts will be displayed.

Born in Loudonville, Ohio in 1943, Crow, is considered the world’s foremost art quilter. Her work has been instrumental in transforming quilting from traditional craft to recognized art medium. She received her Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics & Weaving from Ohio State University in 1969. She has published five books, and images of her work have appeared on the covers of two Maya Angelou books, published by Random House. Her quilts appear in the collections of The Museum of Arts & Design and The Museum of American Folk Art in New York City, The Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian, Indianapolis Museum of Art and Miami University Art Museum in Ohio. She is a Fellow of the American Crafts Council, a member of the Quilters’ Hall of Fame, and a recipient of the prestigious National Living Treasure Award.

"As an activist, teacher, and curator, Nancy Crow was a catalyst and prime mover of the art quilt movement . . . . Today, she stands at the forefront of innovative quiltmaking and she is one of the premier colorists in contemporary American art, no matter what medium one surveys. - Jean Robertson, The Smithsonian Archives of American Art.
