"Time Squared" is the latest group
exhibition of sixteen new works by the members of the Manhattan Quilters
Guild, an eclectic group of professional fiber artists who meet in
New York City. The rules were deceptively simple: Create a quilted
work measuring 36 inches square that relates somehow to theme of "Time
Squared". The resulting quilts reflect the diversity of the individual
artists in the group. While often working in their own signature style,
some chose a particular moment in time, others interpreted the theme
to depict an abstract concept of time; some used the idea of squares
and grids, or referred to Times Square itself. The artists enlisted
a wide range of contemporary quiltmaking techniques and surface design
processes to evoke the pace of life in New York City, a physical or
psychological idea about time and place, or the painstaking construction
or sudden destruction of physical space.
