A decade after Nancy’s work appeared in the International Quilt Museum's grand opening exhibition, she will share some of the quilts she has made since then in a new exhibition in our West Gallery. 

Nancy Crow, a leader in contemporary quilt-making since the 1970’s, will showcase work from the past nine years (2011-2020). The title of the exhibition … DRAWINGS … references to her strongly held belief that she has been drawing, finds drawing intrinsic to who she is as an artist, and that drawing has been refined in her own voice through the swing of her arm, whether in producing monoprints, in the cutting of the fabrics, or in the final machine-piecing. This exhibition will showcase the results of her determination to learn the art of monoprinting using Procion MX thickened dyes on cotton cloth. Over two years she produced more than 200 monoprints, most never shown before, and only a small number in the U.S. The monoprint drawings on exhibit will include many of her tall major works. They will be hung in sequence so viewers can follow her progress as the works become covered with vastly more intense mark-making due to her playing with iterations in size & value scales. Nancy considers these works to be quilted drawings. The “drawing” in her machine-pieced RIFFS manifests as lines, shapes, sequences and spacing. Color has been used sparingly and at other times, boldly.
