'Give and Take' examines work of teacher, student

A new art quilt exhibition at the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery celebrates the teacher and student relationship among quilt artists. "Give and Take: The Artist/Student Dialogue," organized by UNL's International Quilt Study Center, is part of the center's biennial symposium and will run through March 2.

The work of professional quilt artists is paired with work of their students. This national exhibition recognizes the contribution of Quilt Surface Design Symposium of Columbus, Ohio, and its educational programs for non-traditional quilters. All artists featured in "Give and Take" have been instructors, students, or both at the symposium.

Several of these artists' works are included in the permanent collection of the International Quilt Study Center.

A lecture, "Quilt Surface Design Symposium: Incubating the Innovative Quilt" will be presented by Michael James, UNL professor of textiles, clothing and design, at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 15 in the Home Economics Building. A reception will follow and the gallery will be open to view the work. The lecture and reception are free and open to the public.

"Give and Take" coincides with the International Quilt Study Center's scholarly symposium, "Traditions and Trajectories: Education and the Quiltmaker," March 1-3.
