Quilts are coming off the beds and going up on the walls as fine art. More and more gallery art exhibitions are featuring art quilts alongside oil and acrylic paintings, sculptures, etc. As art quilts are gaining in acceptance and popularity, their value as art has been increasing as well. More art collectors are branching out into textiles as well and adding art quilts to their collections. These exhibition opportunities make it easy for collectors to see the artwork in person and purchase from the artist while patronizing their local galleries. As I am notified of jury results, I will be posting upcoming exhibitions here. For previous exhibition information featuring textile artist Jean M. Judd's artworks, go to the Recent Exhibitions page to see exhibition history for individual artworks.
