The quilts in this exhibition are a collection of large and small pieces that embody the passage of time through process and material. Each quilt and new design brings the lessons learned and pieces of cloth left from the one before.
Kelly Kye is a quilter and lover of quilted things, living and working in Asheville, NC. She has a formal textile background, receiving her BFA from East Carolina University and Masters of Art + Design at North Carolina State University. She has called North Carolina home for most of her life with a chunk of time working in New York City. Her passion for quilting came after years of slowly realizing the craft of her mother, grandmother and great grandmother could be modern, challenging and rewarding. Her thoughtful quilt business, KYE + HARDY, uses her design and production experience to create one of a kind hand crafted products with reverence for tradition and the home they will live in.
