Allyson Allen will discuss her vibrant quilts, two of which are presented at Laguna Art Museum in conjunction with the Community Art Project. An exhibition of her quilts, previously on view at the Wells Fargo Bank’s gallery space in Laguna Beach, is currently on view in an expanded format at Neighborhood Congregational Church. They will be on view in both locations through April 24, 2022.
One of the quilts was part of We Are The Story, a multi-venue initiative in Minnesota in 2021, that featured work from several dozen quilters from around the country and focused on the George Floyd murder in Minneapolis and policing in America.
Allen, who resides in Riverside County, has been the recipient of many grants and awards over the past 30 years, including Laguna Beach Arts Alliance’s 7° of Inspiration Grant and the California Arts Council Grant. She has taught quilting for three decades, and is a former high school teacher.
