Berkeley, California (Tuesday, September 21, 2010) - The latest show now on display in the Addison Street Window Gallery on Addison Street in the Arts district of Berkeley is an impressive demonstration of quilting art produced by members of the East Bay Heritage Quilters. The show opened on September 1 and runs through October 15th.
This is the first of a series of shows in the windows that will focus on educating the public to the different forms of art and go into some depth regarding the variety of approaches to the chosen form of art on display. This first show demonstrates the variety of methods of quilting. The show was organized with the assistance of Jenny Alexich who pulled together various works done by members and students of the East Bay Heritage Quilters.
