Graduate student's quilt creation cited at biennial exhibition

Naomi Adams with award winning quilt titled "Greek"Naomi S. Adams, a graduate student in the College of Visual Arts and Design, earned an award for Most Innovative Use of the Medium at the Quilt National 2011.

The event is a biennial exhibition of art quilts from artists in 22 U.S. states and 13 countries. Her quilt was one of 85 juried into the exhibition out of more than 1,000 entries. 

Her award-winning quilt, Greek, right, was created from multiple quilts with shades of green dyed batting in the interior, she said. She cut the quilts into pieces, bent and folded the pieces to make letter shapes, and used adhesive to attach them to the backing quilt.

 “Greek speaks to my fascination with communication struggles in relationships,” she wrote in her artist’s statement. “Our individual and shared experiences and influences affect how we understand and convey meaning.”

She earned an $850 prize sponsored by Friends of Fiberart International. Her quilt will be on view through Sept. 5 at the Dairy Barn Arts Center, Athens, Ohio.
