Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry made her first quilt in 1976. At that time, Caryl never imagined it would lead to a life-long career in textile arts.
A one-person exhibition, Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry: 40 Years of Color, Light, and Motion, celebrates the color and vibrancy of her quilts through the years on the 40th anniversary of that first quilt. The exhibition will appear at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) Museum in Oxford, Mississippi, from January 26 through April 16, 2016.
The 58 quilts in her show include many of the 65 quilts that she has made since 2010. The exhibit also includes highlights from the past, including that very first quilt from 1976, a Rail Fence (not an art quilt, but there to give context to the later work) plus many examples of early work from the 1980s , 1990s, and early 2000s.
Jacuzzi Jazz, above, is her most recent quilt, made especially for this show. Here’s a close-up view:
Her show will also be shown at the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, July 31-October 9, 2016.
Many of the quilts will also be seen in a two person show that Carol is exhibiting with Larkin Van Horn for the entire month of May, 2016, at the Northwinds Arts Center in Port Townsend, Washington.
Carol’s hope is that her quilts will lift the spirits and delight the eyes of those who see them. We hope your eyes have delighted in these glimpses of her work, and that you will have the opportunity to see Caryl’s work in person.
