Join us at the Morris Graves Museum of Art on Sunday, May 5th at 2:00pm for the opportunity to connect with local fiber artist and quilter, Pat Durbin and discuss her exhibit “Picture this…” on view at the MGMA through May 26th.  
 
Durbin will speak about how she has developed her quilted art.  Additional works will be shown (works not included in the exhibit) and methods will be explained and demonstrated.  A photo journey through her art quilting experience will be shared.  Visitors can walk through the exhibit with Durbin after the talk and she will be available to demonstrate and explain her unique methods and share her love of making picture quilts. She will be available to answer questions that arise during the discussion.
 
Durbin’s “Mosaic Picture Quilts” are made with an original method.  Durbin has taught this method and other quilters now use it as well.  Her art has developed over time with a love of the beauty of creation and a background of sewing.  Trips exploring with her husband and photographing many beautiful places have inspired her works. Durbin’s husband’s photos are often used as a model for the quilts.
