“Flying Between”, a collection of aviation inspired quilt blocks and stained glass pieces opens July 6th and runs through September 29, 2018. The exhibit features quilt blocks made mostly by women in the Liberal, KS area. These blocks were a project put together in 1993 by quilter Ragi Marino. Some of the blocks in this exhibit are true airplanes, while others are airplanes in name only. The exhibit will also showcase new stained glass pieces made by artist Kim Mangiaracino of Wichita, KS, and a quilt made by Janet Lewis of Turpin, OK. You may get chances to win this quilt with the proceeds going to the Needles and Friends Quilt Guild and their philanthropic efforts. Tickets will be at the Mid-America Air Museum and the drawing will be held during the Liberal Air Fair, September 8, 2018.
The Mid-America Air Museum will host a public reception for “Flying Between” in the art gallery at the Mid-America Air Museum. The reception, held Friday, July 6th, from 6pm-8pm, will offer free admission to the museum and light refreshments. For more information, contact Sarah at 620.624.5263.
