Melissa Averinos - Cotuit Center for the Arts

Summer is flying by!  So many things to do - so many things to see!  There's still time to go to the Cotuit Center for the Arts to see the current exhibit!  Melissa Averinos has curated an exhibit that includes modern quilts from a variety of people and also work by fiber artist Elizabeth Gurrier.

Melissa Averinos created this improvisational pixel-esque face and also a few other quilts in the exhibit!  

Judy Skwar made this quilt called Newport Crosses!  She machine pieced it and had Melissa Averinos long arm quilt it for her. Judy and Melissa are both members of the Bayberry Quilt Guild.

Ashley Newcomb made this quilt!

Elizabeth Gurrier has amazing white-on-white work in the show!  

She uses hand and machine stitching, along with quilting, trapunto, and stuffing to make fabulous sculptural pieces!  

The detail is amazing!  

Elizabeth's whimsical figures are wonderful!  
Really, you have to go see everything in person.  The show ends September 7 so make a plan to see it!!
