Hidden Messages: Old and New - Vermont Regional Exhibition

July 10 – September 5, 2021
Chandler Center for the Arts
71 N Main Street
Randolph, VT 05060 USA
Reception, July 17, 4 – 7 p.m.

Hidden Messages showcases art by Vermont artists of SDA. The exhibit displays artwork that breaks boundaries of traditional textiles. The works employ familiar techniques of embroidery, knitting, assemblage, and quilting, but they are more than pretty designs. Some hold hidden images; others, hidden stories and identities. The messages behind them relate to family, pandemic isolation, disease, nature, refugees, landscapes, and more. The show is being held in conjunction with an exhibit of traditional quilts at the nearby White River Craft Center.
