The Niagara Arts Guild presents art quilter Carol Miller of Lockport talking about “How Quilters Choose Color” at its March meeting.
Miller, long a microbiologist for Cornell University, found quilting a good way to counter dreary winter weather. She has since devoted herself full-time to the emerging field of art quilts.
Event organizers said, “Thanks to a resurgence of interest sparked by the abstract quilts of enslaved African Americans of Gee’s Bend, Alabama, artists are quietly embracing the comfort of quilts.”
Miller will show images and examples of applying color theory to quilt making.
The Guild meeting takes place at 7 p.m. March 11 at the Dale Association, 33 Ontario Ave., Lockport.
