Quilt Shows in the Valley

There is a fantastic quilt show at Ohio University Eastern up now until Jan. 23 with a reception this Thursday starting at 7 where you can meet the charming and ebullient artist Luke Haynes. The gallery is located on the second floor of Shannon Hall and is open M-W 11-5 and Thursday 5-8.

There’s also simultaneously a sister show at the Wheeling Artisan Center featuring Luke Haynes, Joe Cunningham, Erin Wilson and Leslie Tucker Jenison from Jan 16-30 open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. There is a nice article about the year long build up to the shows here: http://www.theintelligencer.net/page/content.detail/id/594445/Quilt-Art-on-Display-at-Loft-Gallery.html

On Thursday we are doing a gallery hop from Wheeling to St Clairsville to hit both opening receptions. Wheeling’s is 5:30-7 and St Clairsville runs 7-8:30. Both shows were coordinated through MITCH Collective’s residency program.

Hope you get to see these amazing shows!
