Have you ever seen a forty foot-long quilt made as a collaboration by 18 Central Oregon master quilters? No? Well here’s your chance, as it is on display at the Architectural Heritage Center through August and September.
The community’s effort to revitalize the two rivers that frame the Sisters Country (Whychus Creek and the Metolius River) inspired the creation of this quilted masterpiece. With a special focus on revitalizing Whychus Creek which runs through Sisters, Two Rivers, Three Sisters is the story of a river and a community coming together. Thanks to the efforts of many partners, water once again flows in Whychus Creek. Native fish are returning to spawn for the first time in 40 years and a community is re-discovering a gem in its own backyard. Two Rivers, Three Sisters celebrates Whychus Creek’s rebirth. This exhibition is a unique showcase of the strengths of Sisters: rich artistic talent, stunning landscapes and partnerships that truly make a difference.
Opening reception: Friday August 2, 6-8 p.m.
On exhibit until September 28, 2013
