Houston Center for Contemporary Craft presents "Storyline: The Contemporary Quilt," a survey that highlights the spectrum of contemporary quilt-making techniques and traditions. As living artifacts that change over time, historically, quilts have depicted personal histories and fostered community-building throughout many different cultures. Storyline brings together a diverse selection of quilters, including Kathryn Clark, Carolyn Mazloomi, Aaron McIntosh, and Anna Von Mertens, who utilize various techniques, patterns, and materials to document their stories as well as comment on broader cultural narratives. Each artist uses the language of fiber to capture the unique content of his or her work.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 7, 2018.
