February 13 - March 22nd: Twenty quilts featured at the Crossings at Carnegie gallery in Zumbrota, MN.
"Payton’s work has a dynamic, energetic quality which evokes the liveliness of music. This is no surprise, as Payton is a musician as well as a visual artist. His visual medium is art quilts, in which he combines highly patterned fabrics, cut into random shapes that seem barely contained by the fabric border. One would not be at all surprised if the pieces of fabric broke through the frame and began dancing down the wall" - Andrea Gates, Exhibits Coordinator
Join the artists on Saturday, February 25th for an art reception from 6:00-7:15 PM. Afterwards, a classic country music concert “Sing Me Back Home: The Definitive Merle Haggard Tribute Show,” featuring Bobby Vandell and his All Star Band with Melanie Rosales, will take place at the adjacent State Theatre.
