FIELD OF SQUARES - A PRINT QUILT PACK EXCHANGE
Gallery 1010 (UTK) / 100 S. Gay St. , Suite 114 November 5, 2021 - November 7, 2021

This fabric print exchange's theme is "American Landscape," which can be interpreted as a construction of an idea or ideal, stolen land or celebration of expansive space. The artists have been invited to explore domestic, public, micro or macro, historic, animal / vegetable / mineral, political, and/or personal subjects. The vision of this exchange is to use print to create a quilt: an object of comfort and catharsis. Many print exchanges printmakers participate in are archived in a box, destined to be tucked away until you fetch it out for a rare viewing. In its final form, the Field of Squares quilt will inhibit the participants' homes in a form of constant soft display and be interactive, since it holds an innate ability to provide warmth when wrapped around a body.
