Art of Quilter Karol Kusmaul to Be Featured at Citrus Campus
Sept. 12, 2012
The College of Central Florida will host the art of quilter Karol Kusmaul at the Citrus Campus beginning in October.
“One of the things I love about quilting is the rags to riches aspect of taking scrap fabrics or remnants of old clothing, curtains or whatever else you have, and transforming them into beautiful works of art,” Kusmaul said. “The patterns and designs of traditional quilts, as well as those of quilted art pieces, are limitless.”
Kusmaul’s exhibit includes hand- and machine-quilted works of art. Her works have been published in several publications and shown at quilt festivals throughout the United States and Costa Rica.
The exhibit opens Friday, Oct. 5, and runs through Nov. 2 in the upstairs exhibition hall in the Dorothea G. Jerome Building, 3800 S. Lecanto Highway in Lecanto. A reception will be held on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Exhibit hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday. The exhibit is closed weekends. There is no charge to attend the exhibition or the opening, which are made possible by the CF Foundation.
