Presentation by Laura Petrovich-Cheney

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Join the International Quilt Study Center & Museum for a presentation by artist Laura Petrovich-Cheney on Thursday, October 11. Doors open at 5 p.m., the presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Trained as a sculptor, Petrovich-Cheney collects debris in the aftermath of tragedy. Wood from disasters like Hurricane Sandy in New York, and the fires in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is salvaged and repurposed into luminous, quilt-like constructions that belie the opacity and crudeness of their material. Petrovich-Cheney’s work is in numerous public and private collections, and she was recently awarded a 2017 Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
