The Emporium Center / 100 S. Gay St. March 3 - April 1st

This new exhibition features a curated collection of quilts from members of Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild and showcases modern elements such as bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work.

This Knoxville branch of the Modern Quilt Guild has a mission to support and encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through art, education, and community. The Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild is for residents in and around Knoxville who have an interest in modern design and quilting. The Guild provides members with a community where modern quilters can meet, share ideas and create in an environment that encourages creativity and acceptance. One of the original founders of the Modern Quilt Guild, Alissa Haight-Carlton, organized the first modern quilt guild meeting in January 2010. The Guild meets monthly and welcomes new members.
