First, in 2013, I will be exhibiting the New York Beauty quilts at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in San Jose, California. The exhibit will occupy the whole space, all three galleries, and will include approximately 35-40 quilts representing the time period from 1850 to present. Essentially, it is the life story of this classic, American quilt pattern. The exhibit will run from July 30 through mid-October.
In 2014, I'm planning two exhibits, both early in the year. One will be a small exhibit of very old quilts made between 1780 and 1850 at the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center in Tillamook, Oregon; and the other will be a large exhibit of 40 quilts from the second half of the 20th century, mostly 1970s, at the Oregon Historical Society in downtown Portland.
