The Gems of the Ocean Art Quilt Show was the brainchild of Yachats artist and retired Polly Plumb Productions board member Ruth Bass. An art quilter, Bass has been active in the art quilt world and has shared her knowledge and contacts to bring high caliber shows to Yachats.
“One of the goals of the show is to introduce art quilting to both locals and visitors to the area”, stated Bass “We thought the ocean theme would allow artists to explore the beauty of this area and make interpretations based on their own whimsy. We’re delighted to bring this type of show to Yachats and we welcome everyone to experience an art quilt show”.
