October Country

Traci Utley

Traci Utley

Face of a Tiger

It's the first week of October and that means new exhibit time! We have a great new show up for you to cuddle up to by Traci Utley. Traci has been quilting for over 35 years. She says she started with traditional quilts for family and friends. About 14 years ago she was ready for a change in style and started Mosaic Quilting. This exhibit shows some of the fruits of that labor. Here are a few more examples.

Charlie Chaplin

Monarch Butterfly

Marylin Munroe

Mother and Child

There are 26 pieces in total for this exhibit and you can see it here at the Center or why not take a virtual tour with the artist herself here. Give it a watch and a Like if you would. One of a Kind: Mosaic Quilts will be on display until November 4th. If you have any questions please give me or Emily a note at

Extra Bits

  • We have some other fun things going on this month. Our K-6th Art Club is going all month and its a sold out class!

  • The Arts Center, in conjunction with our affiliate Cultural Equity Board, will be taking part in the 2020 Charles City SpookWalk on the 29th 5:30-7:30pm. Bring the kids and drive by. We would love to see you!

  • We have just added some art supplies in the Galleria! More will be added if there is a demand. We will also have them up in the store soon.

That about wraps up another blog. I'd like to leave you all with an excerpt from a great book for this time of year, and a painting by the same Ray Bradbury.

“That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.”
