Texas Quilt Museum opens new exhibits on Sept. 1!

LA GRANGE—August 29, 2022—For the first time since the 2011 opening of the  Texas Quilt Museum, a display cycle will be dedicated to a single exhibit—but what an  exhibit it is! Visitors will be able to view all of the accepted entries from the Museum’s  first-ever juried exhibit, Seeing in Color. It will run September 1-December 18, 2022,  and is partially supported by the Lucille Gaebler Klein Fund.

A call went out last year for entries, and artists from all over the world submitted more  than 150 works. From that list, Museum co-founders Karey Bresenhan and Nancy  O’Bryant juried it down to 52, all of which will be on display. Seeing in Color celebrates the huge role that different shades and hues play in our lives and is sure to be one of the  most important and creative exhibits that the Museum has ever showcased.

The call was open to both art quilts and traditional quilts and asked the quiltmakers to  submit quilts reflecting their idea of color and how they “see” it.

“The quilt images submitted were awe inspiring,” says  Museum Curator Vicki Mangum. “The jurors had a  difficult time selecting the quilts that are included. We  are sure everyone will enjoy this engaging display of  colorful quilts. They truly are stunning.”

As the entry form notated, “Color plays a huge role in  our lives. Color reflects our joys and sorrows. Reveals the  ripeness of the fruits and vegetables we eat and sets the  mood of our homes. Color surrounds us, enfolds us,  cheers us, protects us, and delights us.”

The Texas Quilt Museum is located at 140 W. Colorado St., La  Grange, Texas 78945. Hours are 10 am-4 pm Thursdays, Fridays,  and Saturdays. For more information, visit
