(Clayton, NY) The Great Lakes Seaway Trail is sponsoring a presentation of 60 of the 2013 Hoffman Fabric Challenge Quilts in April. The exhibit will be on display 11am-3pm at the Thousand Islands Art Center, 314 John St, Clayton on the weekends of April 5-6 and April 12-13, 2014.
The collection features quilted works of all styles and sizes in elegant peacock, aqua and gold colors and patterns.
The works of art from quilters all across the United States and Canada includes the 2013 Hoffman Challenge Handwork, Pieced, Appliqué and Sulky award winners.
The $5 weekend entry benefits the Great Lakes Seaway Trail, which promotes tourism all along the National Scenic Byway that parallels the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, Niagara River and Lake Erie in New York and Pennsylvania. The show also benefits the Thousand Islands Art Center, a non-profit organization founded in 1964 that is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of traditional arts and handcrafts through educational programs, classes, and exhibits.
