Quilt Paintings
A solo exhibition featuring the work of Anna Buckner.
October 14- November 20, 2016
Exhibition Reception November 18, 2016 6-8PM

Quilt Paintings is a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Anna Buckner. I piece the fabric scraps together forming a quilt top that is then stretched on a support. The design of the piecework is appropriated from traditional quilt patterns, but the initial symmetry of the piecework is compromised through stretching, causing the material to warp. Therefore, the support of the painting is a tool for transformation, revealing the potential of these materials, and pushing them into a role for which they are not traditionally used.

Raised in North Carolina, Anna Buckner received a BFA in painting from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012 and a MFA in painting from Indiana University in 2016. In 2014, she completed an apprenticeship in Buddhist Thangka painting in Sikkim, India. Anna Buckner has exhibited nationally extensively and was recently featured in the 125th edition of New American Paintings. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Michigan State University.
