“Coming Ashore” by Anne Walker.

ST. GEORGE — On Friday, Aug. 27, Hedgerow Gallery kicks off a show of art quilts and fabric collages by Rockland artist Anne Walker entitled “Not Grandma’s Quilts.”

Although Walker has been quilting since 1976, she didn’t begin “art quilting” until around 2000. “I loved the freedom it gave me to experiment and to make compositions out of pieces of things and impressions of things that had stuck with me during hikes or while traveling. I take a lot of pictures and sift through those as I begin a project. I create a lot of landscapes, but these aren’t landscapes anyone would recognize.” She adds, “And these really aren’t Grandma’s quilts—they’re meant for the wall, not the bed.”

Walker notes that her goal in selecting pieces for her show is to highlight the wide range of subject matter, styles and techniques she enjoys exploring. Lately, she says, she has been intrigued by maps and the landscape patterns she sees out airplane windows.

Walker’s show runs through Sept. 5. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Aug. 27, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Hedgerow Gallery is located at 8 Ridge Road at the corner of Ridge Road and Route 131 on the St. George Peninsula. It is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit hedgerowdesign.com.
