With themes ranging from patriotic to sentimental and styles from patchwork to applique, the biennial Quilt Show at the Breckenridge Fine Arts Center opens Friday, Aug. 28, and will continue through Oct. 13.

Many of Doylene Land’s paintings include a horizon element.

The quilts are on display in the BFAC’s Main Gallery and were entered in the show by people from Breckenridge, Graham, Eastland, Stamford and beyond. During the run of the show, anonymous judges will select first, second and third place winners to receive ribbons. Additionally, a People’s Choice ribbon will be awarded.

This year’s show features mostly newer quilts and quilts that were machine quilted. A couple of quilts are 20 years old or older, said Shalon Taylor Wilson, director of the center.

Also on display at the BFAC is an exhibit of oil paintings by Doylene H. Land of Breckenridge, entitled “Narrative Horizons,” and an exhibit of painted porcelain by Graham artist Cynthia Pinnell.

Most of Land’s paintings feature a horizon line in the design. Accompanying her exhibit,  is a “Family Gallery Guide” that Land created, which includes information about her use of texture, color and other elements.

Pinnell’s work is porcelain with fired mineral paint with luster. The exhibit includes painted plates, pitchers, vases, a tea set, tiles and more.

The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center is located at 207 N. Breckenridge Ave. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Beginning in September, the arts center will also be open on Saturdays. For more information, visit the BFAC’s website or Facebook page or call 254-559-6602.
