New Quilt Art Added To Yakima Convention Center

Quilt reveal 12-13-2012 016Today a new piece of artwork was added to the Yakima Convention Center.

“Fred Redmon Bridge- Gateway to the Valley” is a seven panel quilt created by seven Yakima area fabric artists known as the Anything Goes Quilters. The quilt was inspired by a photo of the iconic I-82 bridge that spans Selah Creek North of Selah, WA.   Each artist created a single panel that was stitched together in 2011.  After showing the piece at various exhibitions, the group decided to donate the quilt to the City and Convention Center for the public to enjoy. The artwork went through the donation process with the Arts Commission and was accepted by the City Council earlier this year.

The artists are Deborah Ann, Sally Fitch, Anna Assink, Jeanne Strater, Barbara Green, Sue Grimshaw and Nancy Rayner.
