No snuggling with these quilts (well, I guess you could, but… ). The annual exhibition “Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie” is all about contemporary art quilts, not keep-me-warm and decorate-the-bed quilts. The exhibition has become one of the hotspots to see the latest in art quilts, with hundreds of submissions for this 2018 exhibition. Twenty-two artists, including Louisville’s Vickie Wheatley and Lexington’s Arturo Sandoval, created the works. The judges awarded a number of prizes, and there is also an award that the show’s visitors get to select. Exhibition programming includes a “Felt, Form, and Function” workshop with Vallorie Henderson on June 23 and “Lunch & Learn: Fit for a King” with costume designers B & K Enterprises, Inc. on July 17. By the way, the name of the Center is car-NAY-ghee, not CAR-na-ghee. This was confirmed when the new director, Eileen Yanoviak, researched the proper pronunciation after I raised the question in our interview (May 30, 2018 LEO Weekly).
