Excavating for Meaning, Hearing the Quiet: Walking the Creeks, and Curves

Oct. 17, 2015 - Jan. 03, 2016
Excavating for Meaning is an exhibition of highly textured quilted textiles inspired by architectural excavations and the mysteries held within layers of discovery. San Diego artist Viviana Lombrozo has created maps, shields and hanging works for this solo exhibit. Hearing the Quiet: Walking the Creeks is an intimate exhibition by Maryland artist Linda Colsh. Stones and rocks rest alongside and under the water in each of the three creeks along her walks. They change in color and shape affected by the seasons, time of day and the color of the sky. Colsh has created six pieces expressly for this exhibition. Curves is a series of quilts by Visions Art Museum members on the theme, each 10 inches high and 14 inches wide.
