Without a Word, an art quilt exhibition by Art Quilt Network members, opens at the Zanesville Museum of Art on May 3 with a free and public reception from 2–4 p.m.

The exhibit will feature 30 quilts by professional artist members of the Art Quilt Network. This exhibition explores storytelling through imagery, ranging from realistic to abstract images.

The Art Quilt Network is a U.S./Canadian organization founded in Ohio in 1986 by pioneering quilt artist Nancy Crow. Many AQN members are recipients of state and national awards, grants, and have exhibited in Europe, Asia, Australia, as well as the United States.

Without a Word will include works by artists who reside in Ohio, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oregon and Virginia. 

Art quilt members from the southeast and central Ohio areas are well represented, including Susan Nash from Zanesville, and Anne Triguba, Judith Vierow, Jody Beth Wigton, Judy Krol, Gwen Surratt and Frauke Palmer from the Columbus area.

The exhibition closes on July 24. Visit for more information.
