Artists have long been inspired by the vast Texas landscape with its diversity, grandeur and mystery that unrolls from the Gulf to Staked Plains, to the Borderlands and the Hill Country. 'A Sense of Place: Texas Landscape Art Quilts' is a juried exhibition of works by 30 artists that is scheduled to tour throughout Texas from 2020 to 2022.
The 30 artists whose work is included in the exhibition explored the Texas landscape to create art quilts in styles ranging from representational to abstract styles. Their artwork examines our human attachment to specific places, and what makes those places meaningful and unique. Many of the artists exhibit their work widely and frequently, and several are highly regarded instructors as well.
