Color Improvisations 2 (McGregor & Deer Galleries)

Jan 4 – Mar 29, 2020

Color Improvisations 2 is an international quilt exhibition curated by
Nancy Crow, one of the most celebrated and influential quilt artists
of the past forty years. The show features 50 large, improvisational
quilts by 43 artists from Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland,
Japan, Scotland, and the United States.

All of the quilts, made specifically for this exhibition, highlight the
artists’ ability to create abstract compositions on a large scale with
pieces measuring up to 90 x 90.” Each work was machine-pieced
and quilted, with many including hand-dyed fabrics that make this
collection of quilts truly unique. The Springfield Museum of Art is the
only U.S. destination to exhibit all 50 quilts in one venue.

Packed II: Works by Nicki Crock (Chakeres Gallery)

Oct 12, 2019–Feb 9, 2020

This solo exhibition features a range of works from Columbus, Ohio artist Nicki Crock. Through installation, sculpture, and performance, she explores issues of home and community as well as the role of place and transformation. Having lived in one home for the majority of her childhood, it wasn’t until her later teen years that she embarked on a nomadic lifestyle, searching to recreate a sense of the familiar while also embracing the differences of each new domicile. Her art reflects this push and pull, evoking at once a sense of nostalgia while also suggesting the excitement of the unknown.
