Ellen Lindner’s “Caring” on display at Crealdé School of Art

Quilts are no longer just for the bed and Ellen Lindner’s piece, “Caring,” is a perfect example.  It not only breaks new ground with its techniques, but it quite literally pushes the boundaries of the rectangular format so frequently used. 

“Caring” is on display as part of Mid-Florida Quiltmakers:  Commemorations and Connections, where it clearly speaks to the theme.  Also on display is The Sum of Many Parts:  Quiltmakers in Contemporary America, an exhibit that has traveled extensively for the last few years.  Both exhibits will be on display through January 18th, 2016.  Crealde’s main campus is located at 600 St. Andrews Blvd., Winter Park, FL.  Hours are 9-4, M-Th, 9-1 Fr-Sat.  Admission is free.

In choosing silhouettes for this and the other pieces in her Body Language series, Lindner strove to show recognizable relationships between her subjects, while simultaneously eliminating as much detail as possible.   She feels that this anonymity gives them universal impact.  See more of her work on her website:
