April 2011 - The City Quilter / The Art Quilt Gallery NYC
NEW YORK--The ArtQuilt Gallery•NYC opened April 5, becoming the only commercial gallery for quilts in New York City, filling a void in the nation’s art center. Located in Manhattan’s Chelsea district, next to The City Quilter, the gallery will showcase the best quilts from around the world. Though adjoining The City Quilter on West 25th Street, a gathering point for both hobbyists and professional quilters for 14 years, The ArtQuilt Gallery•NYC will have a separate entrance and separate identity.
