Turned Edges and Tiny Stitches
Curated by Marla Day from the K-State Historic Costume and Textile Museum collection. Turned Edges and tiny Stitches features twenty-two artifacts that range from full size quilts, an unfinished quilt top and quilt blocks, all with an interesting Kansas if not Manhattan connection in their past. The applique quilts date from the 1850's to the 1950's and demonstrate a span of one hundred years of this needle art tradition. The exhibit will highlight the artistry, aesthetics, and the history of the families that created and cared for them. Marla Day is the curator of the Historic Costume and Textile Museum at K-State.

Herd - the photography of Don Wolfe
In spite of the proliferation and popularity of farmers' markets and farm to table events, most people today have no idea where their food comes from. Don Wolfe uses portraiture as a unique way of introducing us to our food. He gives the viewer the opportunity to see these animals in a way they may have never considered before.
Don Wolfe grew up in western Kansas and now lives in Matfield Green, KS.
All MAC gallery exhibits are free and open to the public.
Meet the curator and artist at the opening reception on Friday October 2, 5-7pm.
