Contemporary Curves by Audrey Esarey, presented by National Quilt Museum
Contemporary Curves is a collection of quilts exploring circular shapes and dynamic, high-contrast colors made by Audrey Esarey. The quilts featured in this exhibit are primarily from three ongoing series: Radial Quilts, Watercolor Quilts, and Aura Quilts. All works are carefully drafted, pieced, and quilted without using appliqué, and many feature fabrics hand dyed by Audrey.

Speakers

Audrey Esarey
Audrey Esarey has always considered herself a maker. Born and raised in a suburb of Chicago, she spent her free time experimenting with a variety of artistic endeavors including photography, pottery, and sewing. It wasn’t until she found quilting in 2005 that she identified her creative niche. Quilting was the perfect balance of deliberate composition and precision through piecing, while allowing for artistic expression and spontaneity through color selection. In 2018, she began creating quilts in a modern design aesthetic leveraging techniques grounded in traditional quilt making, with hopes to exhibit her work in a modern quilt show. Her quilt, Offset (2018), was the first to hang in a juried show, and led to a series of quilts featuring concentric circles of high-contrast radiating wedges called the Radial Quilt series.
