Sixteen of Mrs. Richardson's remarkable wall hangings will be on display at the Center through August 31. Widely known as a "painter with fabric," Richardson's work has been displayed in museums and art centers across the eastern United States, and images of her unique quilts have been published in numerous magazines, including: Folk Art Magazine, Baltimore Album Revival, Watercolor Im- pressions, Quilter's Newsletter, Veranda and American Quilter. She has traveled, lectured and taught quilting extensively in her "retirement,'... and has accumul- ated an impressive collection of awards and ribbons from various quilt contests and guild chal- lenges. Early in her creative life, Richardson explored a wide variety of art forms, but became a quilter in the 1980's after discovering the medium's end- less possibilities. "These stunningly beautiful pieces are heavily embellished with beadwork, and the vivid color combinations and selected fabrics are at once unusual and harmonious, with exquisite de- tail and craftsmanship, says Sarah Romeo, director of Ap- palachian Arts Center. "Many of her quilts in this exhibition tell a story, often times expressing humor and joy. Anyone with an interest in quilting and/or fiber arts should make a point to see this show. Sylvia Richardson is, without a doubt, one of our region's most masterful, and inspired artisans." Appalachian Arts Center, a part of Southwest Virginia Com- munity College, is located on Route ~q9 'in the 'Old Archie Helton Store' - 2.5 miles south ogClayp0ol Hill.
