Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Curator and art quilter Sandra Sider has put together a very easy to read book looking at the new direction in American Art of the 1960s-1980s by the early artists of the studio quilt movement. Sandra has compiled many interviews, email surveys, and extensive research into early art quilt books to write this book about the beginnings of quilts as artwork.

Artists included in the survey are Nancy Crow, Terri Hancock, Mangat, Judith Content, Jean Ray Laury, Bonnie Lehman, Michael James, Ed Larson, Miriam Schapiro, Katherine Westphal, Caryl Bryer Fallert, Nancy Halpern, Dominie Nash, Marilyn Henrion, Katie Pasquini Masupust, and many others.

From a historical perspective it is great to put into perspective what was happening at the time and to link it to what is happening now in the studio quilt movement as well. Textile artworks are being incorporated into fine art exhibitions, corporate art collections, as well as craft exhibitions.
