Wrapped In Color is a solo exhibition of art quilts by Artist Member Cara Gulati. Gulati's dynamic compositions command attention through distortions of imagery and her use of vibrant colors. Gulati's works are sumptuous paintings filled with swirling flowers, shapes, ribbons meandering through space: Soft to the eye and expertly created using her medium of choice, fabric and thread.
About the artist: Cara Gulati specializes in fiber art. Her career path has always included fabric, from selling fabric and clothing to designing and wholesaling her own line of children’s wear. She designs modern quilts as well as illustrates and publishes books and patterns for quilters. Gulati teaches and lectures internationally.
Gulati states: Color is the most important element in my Art Quilts. Bright saturated colors that make the heart pound faster, the pupils dilate and the hands desire to reach out to touch. The look and feel of fabric provides a tactile sense of the familiar, while thread work adds depth and texture.
