An internationally recognized contemporary textile artist, Velda Newman’s award-winning  quilts have a three-dimensional quality to them. The Californian artist works in vivid colors and close-up detail of her subjects – shells, flowers, fruit are a few examples – creating stunning works of textile art.

Many of the works are on loan from the artist’s private collection.

One of Newman’s works, Hydrangea, which was exhibited at the Museum in 2008,  was recognized as one of the top 100 quilts of the 20th century.
