COLUMBIA, Ky. -- More than two dozen
award-winning quilts by a Southcentral Kentucky resident are on
display through Feb. 28 in the Lindsey Wilson College Lucretia C.
Begley Art Gallery.
A total of 28 quilts by Adair County resident Denise Stewart
of Dunnville are on display in the liberal arts college's art
Stewart's quilts have won scores of awards in county and state fair
competitions. Her most recent quilt,
Columbia, won best of show in the 2012 Kentucky
Bluegrass Quilt Show.
Stewart belongs to local quilting guilds, and she has been
involved with Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society and Kentucky
Extension Homemakers association since she moved to Kentucky in
Stewart began quilting in 1986, and she has taught quilting classes
since 1989. She teaches regularly at local quilting venues,
including Runaway Quilters Retreat near Owensboro, Ky., and Jabez
Quilt Seminar near Jabez, Ky., on Lake Cumberland.
"One thing that strikes me about her work is the skill and the
craft about how they are made -- there is no doubt that these are
quality produced," said LWC Professor of Art Tim Smith, who is curator of the Begley
Gallery. "The colors and patterns break away from the traditions of
quilting. Her personality and ideas comes through the
quilting. We are really fortunate to have an opportunity to show
"Quilts," by Denise Stewart, will be on display through Feb. 28
in the Lindsey Wilson College Lucretia C. Begley Art Gallery in the
W.W. Slider Humanities Center, 155 Blue Raider Drive. Gallery hours
