A gallery reception will be held on Friday, Oct. 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. for the newest exhibit in the Welborn Gallery at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center. The exhibit is entitled Autumn Conversation and features quilts from the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild of Winston-Salem

Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild of Winston-Salem is made up of approximately 130 women and men interested in promoting and supporting quilting and related fiber arts, according to a press release from the Yadkin Arts Council. Members are dedicated to spreading their enthusiasm to the community through charitable donations of quilts on a regular basis to young patients at Brenner’s Children’s Hospital and senior citizens in assisted living facilities. The group makes several hundred nap blankets every year for children in Equity Plus Schools and hosts an annual quilt show.

This quilt collection on display are made in fall and Halloween colors, and is notable for the remarkably different interpretations of the theme. These include a broad variety of quilt designs from traditional, to art and modern quilts, which range in size from wall hangings (measuring approximately 20 x 20 inches) to 80 x 90 inch bed quilts.

The exhibit will hang in the Welborn Gallery through the end of November.
