Come hear Paula Nadelstern discuss the history and technique of her internationally renowned quilting style and the Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Art of Paula Nadelstern exhibition at the Akron Art Museum on Sunday, June 19 at 2 pm.
Paula Nadelstern is a native New Yorker, born and raised in the Bronx. The two-bedroom apartment she shares with her husband has also served as her studio for more than twenty years. Nadelstern’s work integrates the infinite design possibilities and ever-changing relationships of color, pattern light and texture of a kaleidoscope with the techniques and materials of quilt making.
She is the author of Paula Nadelstern’s Kaleidoscope Quilts: An Artist’s Journey Continues, Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Workbook, Puzzle Quilts: Simple Blocks, Complex Fabric, Kaleidoscopes & Quilts and Snowflakes & Quilts. Nadelstern was the recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 1995 and 2001. She designs textile prints exclusively for Benartex, Inc. and travels extensively teaching her unique kaleidoscopic quilt making techniques.
Tickets are $10 for members, $15 for non-members. To register for the lecture, visit www.AkronArtMuseum.org.
