Fiber Evolution | Artist Unleashed | Diane L. Murtha

August 1 - September 30

Come See Diane L. Murtha’s Contemporary Fiber Art in the North Gallery during August and September, 2024 at Maquoketa Art Experience. 

Diane has magically transformed textiles into beautiful pieces of contemporary fiber art. Follow her visual journey and growth from crafting beautiful traditional quilts to art quilts, and into modern works. Initially influenced by her grandmother, Diane expanded her skills by participating in quilt challenges, each stretching her to learn or try something new, as well as developing her own unique techniques to create the looks she envisioned.

Then read about the stories behind the quilts in her new book Artful Insights in Fiber: Quilted Bits of Wit & Wisdom.

The Gallery is free and open-to-the-public. Donations are Welcome.

Artist Reception: Saturday, August 3, 2-4 PM
