Get wrapped up in quilts at Beloit Art Center

Written by  Staff Writer
BELOIT — Local artists are sharing the joy of quilting at the October show at the Beloit Art Center. The Main Gallery features a quilt display, while the Bell Gallery features a corresponding exhibit of mixed media on wood.

The art quilters are Pam Moller and Karen Neuendorf.

Among the many quilts Moller will display is a four-panel series of wall hangings. The three-dimensional pieces measure a total of 14 feet and are titled “Falling Leaves.”

In a news release, Moller said she loves trees and draws inspiration from nature and her surroundings.

Neuendorf has been a quilter since 2008. Many of her quilts reflect places to which she has traveled.

“Art quilting gives me the opportunity to create with no boundaries,” Neuendorf said.

Sally McFerren, owner of Attic Quilts in Beloit, will exhibit two traditional quilts and a quilt created by her grandmother in 1928.

In the Bell Gallery, Molly Dillon will exhibit “Putting the Pieces Together.”

The series was inspired by the pieces that make up a quilt — the colors, patterns and their placement that tell a story or at least set a certain feeling or mood,” Dillon said.

The mixed media pieces have a base of wood with added paint, felt, glue and stone for texture and dimension.

The center is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
