During the 1980s, Pamela Studstill's remarkable body of work established her as a member of a group of pioneering artists who broke the traditional bounds of quiltmaking and launched it into today's art world. Studstill's #21 won Best of Show at the 1983 Quilt National exhibition, and she was awarded National Endowment for the Arts Visual Arts Fellowships in 1983 and 1988. She also was one of fourteen artists invited to make quilts for the genre-defining 1987 exhibition "The Art Quilt," curated by Penny McMorris and Michael Kile. Quilts by Pamela Studstill are in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution's American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery; the Museum of Arts & Design in New York City; the Ardis and Robert James Collection at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, (which includes six of her quilts); the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and the John M. Walsh III Collection of Contemporary Art Quilts.
This colorful Studstill masterpiece was purchased from the Connell Gallery in Atlanta in 1995 by its current and only owner.
It has been in storage for most of its life and is in perfect, original condition.
