Did you know that the Tidewater region of Virginia is incredibly diverse? The area is home to the largest concentration of military bases in the United States, a wide assortment of museums and galleries, and four Fortune 500 companies. It is because of these many opportunities that so many people decide to make the Tidewater their home. When such diversity is present it creates a unique cultural rhythm as the many rich cultures are swirled together to create the community of the Tidewater. As exhibit curator Wilma Gerald stated, “The quilts created in this region are as diverse as their makers and the wide range of styles reflect the expansiveness of the region…the artists share a respect of self-expression and embrace the freedom to create quilts that reflect their individual culture, history and style.”

This vibrant and awe inspiring exhibit features approximately 80 quilts by 42 different artists. The quilts are diverse in style, technique, and ages ranging from antique to present day. There is certainly a quilt that will appeal to everyone. We hope you will come to the Museum and help us celebrate quilting by enjoying these beautiful pieces of art.
