Three Worlds-One Spirit

A collaboration over thousands of miles, spanning 21 years, is the core of this new exhibit “Three Worlds – One Spirit.” The exhibit features quilts by Artist Member Laura Lee Fritz, displayed in conjunction with work by Guatemala City quilt artist Priscilla Bianchi. Both artists are inspired by the indigenous Mayan textiles from Guatemala Highland villages. Laura’s quilt designs are created in response to the traditional huipiles (embroidered blouses) and stories told by the Mayan textiles. Priscilla Bianchi creates passionately brilliant quilt interpretations, which are then stitched and quilted by Laura Lee Fritz. Experience this captivating exhibition displayed in “trios,” with each artists’ artwork hung alongside the inspirational Mayan weaving.
