The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America 

The famous 1971 show at the Whitney Museum of American Art established quilting as a valid (and vital) contemporary art form, and it sparked a revived interest in the humble folk art. The new exhibition at the Foundry, The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America, provides an overview of the state of the art. These quilts are not the Log Cabin and Grandmother's Flower Garden of traditional quilting (not that there's anything wrong with that), but works that draw on concepts of abstract and modern art. The show includes pieced, patched and appliqued quilts by a host of artists.

10 a.m.-8 p.m. Tue.-Thu., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Fri. & Sat., noon-4 p.m. Sun. (Apr. 10-Jul. 10). Foundry Art Centre (520 North Main Center, St. Charles; 636-255-0270 or Free admission..
