Color Improvisations 2 is an exhibition of contemporary quilts curated by Nancy Crow (Baltimore, Ohio), one of North America’s most celebrated and inﬂuential quiltmakers and teachers.
The exhibition includes 25 spectacular large-format quilts by 25 artists from Canada, Germany, Scotland, Switzerland and the United States – including a piece by Nancy Crow. The project grew out of Crow’s interest in celebrating the “…majesty, strength and energy of large textile works, specifically large quilts.” While the group’s collective use of rich solid colors improvisational piecing, and intricate machine quilting are all at the service of pure abstract design, each artist maintains a strong individual identity.
The exhibition premiered at the Museum Tuch+Technik in Germany in 2016, and has subsequently been shown in Spain, Switzerland and France. In 2018, a select number will be presented at the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This is the exhibition’s first North American, and only Canadian venue.
