40 Acres Art Gallery - $15,000 quilt exhibit grant

Congratulations to the 40 Acres Art Gallery in Sacramento, CA. Recently they received a $15,000 grant from the Sacramento Region Community Foundation for a project called: "Amazing Wonders: Quilts by African Americans of the Northern California Region."

According to the Gallery, Amazing Wonders will bring the private collections of over 30 quilts by artists from the Sacramento area to "preserve the cultural craft of quiltmaking and bridge the generational divide with today’s youth by creating a digital photo self-portrait quilt." The grant will also cover an all-day community quilt-making session with community residents. Again, congrats!

I am looking for African American quilters in the northern California region to consider for the exhibit, which will open October 2009 in Sacramento. Information on the exhibit will be posted to our website soon. I would love to hear from you! Kim Curry-Evans, Director, 40 Acres Art Gallery ( or 916-456-5080).
