PORT TOWNSEND — The North Olympic Chapter of the Surface Design Association presents “Past and Present Quilts,” a walk-by window display of vintage and modern pieces.
The work is on view at Gale Investment Management at 675 Tyler St., Port Townsend.
Created or collected by eight textile artists, the 25 pieces on view through May include art quilts and patchwork, some dating from the 1940s and 1950s, pieced by great-great aunts and grandmothers.
Some are hand-stitched and some are made with hand-dyed fabric.
Participating artists and collectors include Sequim’s Linda Carlson and Kathie Cook; Port Ludlow’s Jeri Auty; and Port Townsend artists Leslie Dickinson, Sue Gale, Pat Herkal, Debra Olson and Mary Tyler.
Information on the quilts is posted in the window and on the chapter’s website at sda-np.com. The North Olympic chapter normally meets monthly, with meetings rotated between Sequim, Port Angeles and Port Townsend.
