Kentucky quilts come to Fresno.
From April 13 through May 19, you can see the only Western showing of "Kentucky Quilts 1800--1900." The 24-quilt exhibit, assembled by the Kentucky Quilt Project and sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution's Traveling Exhibition Service, features works chosen by curators who traveled the state to find the best quilts produced in the 19th century. These are the survivors, those quilts not "used up." Some are pieced, others show fine applique work.
Open from 10 to 5 Tuesdays through Sundays, the Fresno Art Center is at 2233 N. First Street. Admission is $2 (free on Saturdays), free for children under 16. Free Saturday tours are given at 2 and 3.
