3rd 01SJ Biennial September 2010

A global festival of art on the edge

Advanced Geometry: Gloria Hansen

San Jose Museum of Quilts + Textiles
Festival hours: Tue. – Sun., 10 am – 5 pm
Fri., 8 pm – 11 pm

Advanced Geometry: Gloria Hansen is a selection of art quilts by a self-described computer nerd and one of the world’s foremost experts on computerized quilting. Hansen’s gorgeously and intricately designed and executed art quilts definitely feel of-the-moment but also owe a debt of gratitude to the Op-Art of the 1960s. Hansen has mastered the use of bold geometry and concentric lines to achieve surprising beauty at the same time fooling your eye into seeing vibration, depth and motion.
