    Highfield Hall & Gardens is pleased to announce a new exhibition Edges, featuring 35 contemporary art quilts made by Massachusetts and Rhode Island members of Studio Art Quilt Associates: SAQA. The co-curators, Elaine Caminos Hickey and Sue Colozzi, chose the theme "edges" because of the  many physical and conceptual meanings available to artists: "We encounter many edges in our lives -the edge between water and land, land and sky, day and night, fall and winter, hope and discouragement. We can equally live on the edge, negotiating a path between difficult options or exploring life to its limits." An edge can be a physical line or border marking a limit, something all stitched quilts have in common. Artist and exhibition juror Anastasia Azure, states that edges reveal a perspective, serve as a navigational boundary, and ultimately as a pathway of discovery.

     Edges fills the galleries with color and pattern. Visitors will find an array of provocative and unconventional subjects, incorporating qualities of quilt-making as it is defined by technique and material. These formal qualities of a quilt; layering, stitching, and finally composition, offer the contemporary artist endless possibilities.

     There will be scheduled guided gallery tours each Wednesday. A recorded guided tour by juror Anastasia Azure is scheduled for April and will be available for viewing.
