The Wilton Historical Society is honored to be showing the work of critically acclaimed quilt designer Denyse Schmidt. Her creations are modern interpretations of classic quilt designs – contemporary, functional textile art with deep historic roots.
June Myles' hooked artwork engages the viewer with humor and a style that finds its origins in folk art. Alive with color, texture and movement the pieces display her sophisticated use of color, love of language and virtuoso needle skills. Her work has been exhibited widely across Connecticut and in Maine and West Virginia.
