Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY, is hosting an exhibition of natural fibers, quilts, and textile arts in their Fine Arts Building from September 10 to December 5, 2009.
After a nice drive to the southern part of New York state on a beautiful day and a short stop at an equally nice quilt store, we arrived on campus.
The campus is beautifully landscaped, and there were many rose bushes still in bloom. But I was equally interested in the grid lines on the walkways and those made by the shadows.
There are three exhibitions:
The Evolution of Natural Fibers
Vibrations - Color Resonance in Antique Quilts (1860-1940)
Contemporary Quilt Show
This is a view of some of the display from the Contemporary Quilt Show.

Viewing all the displays (and making one more stop at another quilt shop) was hard work. So it was only good planning to make time for some needed nourishment for the trip home.
