“Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry: 40 Years of Color, Light, and Motion” at the Texas Quilt Museum, Fallert-Gentry’s nearly 50 quilts have more in common with prints than patterns. Her color-rich, painterly pieces have been installed on a gallery wall and placed to create dialogues. Sadly, these quilts won’t keep you warm at night, but you can still rest assured; Fallert-Gentry is “very salt of the earth,” says Dr. Sandra Sider, curator of the museum. And there’s “nothing rarified about quilt art.” On April 1, the museum offers free admission after 2 p.m. and Fallert-Gentry will give a lecture at 3 p.m.
Open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. March 30 through June 25. Texas Quilt Museum, 140 West Colorado, La Grange. For information, call 979-968-3104 or visit texasquiltmuseum.org. $6 to $8.
