BEMIDJI -- Watermark Art Center will hold an open house to welcome new exhibit "A Quilter's Perspective - 1915 to Present Day," curated by Bonnie Lundorff, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5, at Watermark, 505 Bemidji Ave. N.

According to a release, Lundorff broadens the definition of quilting for visitors while highlighting the diverse personalities who make them. From traditionally pieced wall hangings and bed quilts to abstract and contemporary art quilts you will discover a whole new meaning to the word quilt.

"Every quilter has their own interpretation of what quilting is. For some it is the utilitarian bed-sized variety that Grandma made from scraps while others envision uniform geometrics designed to re-create recognizable patterns," the release said. "Through the evolution of society, design, necessity and economics, quilting has taken on new meaning."

The exhibit will be on display from Feb. 5 to March 26 in Watermark's Kaul Gallery.
