Gallery Exhibit Features Art Quilts
A new exhibit featuring art quilts by Westminster member Marj Luchtenburg is now on display in the Westminster Gallery. Marj's love of sewing began when her mother encouraged her to join 4-H in junior high school. Then in the 1970s, when interest in quilting was growing, Marj began to sew quilts. Her first creations were traditional quilts, but her focus shifted when she discovered art quilts. She joined a local art quilt group, where the members support each other in their creative pursuits. She now primarily creates art quilts.
Marj exhibits her quilts in the annual Des Moines Area Quilters Guild show, the Reiman Gardens quilt show, and other venues. She has won many awards and ribbons, and one of her quilts is being published in the American Quilters Society's desk calendar for 2019.
Stop by the Westminster Gallery to view Marj's art quilts, on display during October and November. The Gallery is located on the lower level by the Allison entrance and is open M-F 8:00 - 5:00 p.m.
