Sue Rash Quilt Exhibit on Display in Tucker Gallery

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – The Gardner-Webb University School of Performing and Visual Arts presents the Sue Rash Quilt Exhibit, a colorful and unique design display of her handcrafted creations, in the gallery of the Tucker Student Center, now through Friday, Feb. 21.  An opening reception was held Jan. 16 from 4 to 6 p.m., followed by an artist’s talk in the Time Warner Cable Theatre, also on the Gardner-Webb campus.

Rash is a long time resident of Cleveland County, N.C., and a retired educator.  She is a member of the Foothills Quilters Guild of Shelby, N.C.  The group was chartered in 1986 and has approximately 100 members in the region from both Carolinas.  Members like Rash have participated in various events over the years, including a biyearly Quilter’s show.  Rash is also the mother of the famous author and Gardner-Webb alumnus, Ron Rash.

Organizers of the show hope exhibit visitors will gain an appreciation of the repetitive needle-and-thread-by-hand process of stitching together two or more layers of material to create a unique and cozy handcrafted quilt.
