Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie

The Carnegie Center for Art and History presents the annual “Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie” exhibition, featuring art quilts selected by guest jurors Kathleen Loomis, Kate Lydon, and Clara Nartey. The exhibition opens Thursday, May 11, 2023 and continues through July 22, 2023. “Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie” is celebrating 20 years in 2023!

Since its founding in 2004, this exhibition has become one of the premiere exhibitions of contemporary art quilts in the nation. “Form, Not Function” is juried each year by a rotating panel of fiber artists and art professionals, who consider the originality, design, technique and craftsmanship of the submitted works. This year, 28 art quilts were selected from 341 works submitted by almost 200 artists from across the United States.
