with Denyse Schmidt, Textile Artist

$10 (members 10% discount)

Purchase tickets here

Join Denyse Schmidt, former graphic designer and graduate of RISD, as she takes you on a visual journey highlighting the twists and turns, the influences and inspirations, that led to her unique quilts becoming a commercial venture in 1996. Drawn to the deep historical nature of quilts and inspired by beauty born of necessity, Schmidt adds her distinctive aesthetic sensibility – clean, spare lines, vibrant color, and bold graphics – to this rich art form.
