Radka Donnell: The Work of Touch is on display currently, through July 12. A retrospective of the works one of art quilting's earliest and most well-regarded artists, the show brings together some of Radka's most colorful works.
Radka Donnell is one of the most important and influential quiltmakers of the past forty years. She was
one of the first academically trained artists to adopt the quilt as her medium, and she has pioneered in
exploring what quilts can mean and look like, challenging both traditional quiltmakers and the fine arts establishment with her visually powerful and emotionally expressive work. Her quilts are grand in scale, and have a great impact with thier color and sense of movement. Now eighty years old, Radka continues to make quilts and teach. She has produced
nearly 500 quilts over the past forty-three years, written the eloquent book Quilts as Women’s Art: A Quilt Poetics, and taught courses on the history, theory and techniques of quilting at both Simmons College and Westfield State College in Massachusetts. She says that she has stayed with quiltmaking because it helped her to find wholeness and be open to enjoy, advise, and validate the creativity of other women. “I believe we are all equally creative,” she says.
