This exhibition features two distinct approaches of the expression and structure of quilts. The focus of Laurel Izard’s quilts is the mass extinction of animals. She searches for vintage unfinished quilt tops and these rescued works her quilts and symbolize the warmth and care she would like to extend to all things living on planet Earth. The wall panels by Edwin Shelton are comprised of layers, which can include discarded plastic cat litter bags, fabrics, window screen, beads, and acrylic paint. The theme of his artwork reflects his perception of the duality of daily life as we struggle in the day to day}.
