The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s exhibition of contemporary art quilts, Pushing the Surface, will be open to the public until Monday, Sept. 6. The exhibition is a dance of color, beauty, ingenuity, and story that showcases pieces made by 22 artists with national and international recognition. Although most of the works share the basic structural characteristics of a quilt — joining at least two layers of fiber with stitching, they break from tradition in their design methods.

 This is the 12th year Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum has presented this biennial exhibit sponsored by the Mary F. Taylor Family. The show is curated by Elisa and Roxanna Deadman. The Ohio Arts Council also helped fund this event with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. In addition to this special exhibit, the museum’s permanent collections are displayed in four additional galleries: American Indian, Early Ohio, Progressive Ohio, and Beyond Our Borders. Come see Pushing the Surface before it ends on Sept. 6.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is open every day from noon to 4 p.m. The museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St., in Historic Roscoe Village, Coshocton. For more information, contact JHM at 740-622-8710, email: [email protected]org, or visit www.jhmuseum.org. Admission is: Adults – $5, children – $4, family – $15, and Friends of the Museum are free.
