Kay Marburger created the "Sentinel of the Gulf" quilt for her son who works on oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. It's one of the quilts on display in Nacogdoches.
Contemporary quilt art goes on display Tuesday at Stephen F. Austin State University. The 26 works by Texans were completed between 1993 and 2011. Sandra Sider is the consulting curator for the Texas Quilt Museum in LaGrange, Texas. She selected the quilts for this exhibition and said they demonstrate how contemporary quilt art has a rightful place as a visual art form.
