On display daily October 19, 2019 – January 12, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. inside the Education Center, Fibersong: The Beauty and Whimsy of Nature is a unique quilt exhibit created by award-winning artist Paula Entin.
Working with a diverse array of materials, Entin creates quilts that present three dimensions. It is this multi-material quality of Entin’s art quilts that makes them such showstoppers. What looks ordinary becomes extraordinary. A flower’s leaves are made of leather; mushrooms are made of suede. She embellishes with beads, wire, even knitted yarn. It is this sense of whimsy that makes Entin’s work a delight to see, and just as in the natural work, there is always something new to discover when you look closely enough.
Entin is a member of the Studio Art Quilts Association, the Asheville Quilt Guild, the Modern Quilt Guild and the American Quilters Society. All art quilts are available for purchase, and a portion of the sales will be donated to The North Carolina Arboretum Society.
