Arabesque by Liz Whitney Quisgard

Recent works created by New York City artist Liz Whitney Quisgard will be part of a new exhibition that is set to open at The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University on Oct. 17. The exhibition will remain open until June 30, 2018.

“Arabesque will feature some textile works by Quisgard, along with some of her most famous architectural pieces, paintings and sculptures depicting a quasi-imaginary world where everything is covered in an ornamental design reminiscent of Arabic or Moorish decoration.

Quisgard will give an artist talk on the day of the exhibition’s opening, at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, in the Beltz Gallery of the Quick Center. A reception will follow. All are welcome to attend. The event is free and open to the public.

Quisgard is an American artist schooled at the Maryland Institute College of Art who lives and works in New York City. Her work delights people through dozens of public collections, including public art commissions in several mid-Atlantic states and in museum collections on two continents. More than 50 corporate collections hold pieces of her work around the world. She has participated in hundreds of group and solo exhibitions.

Quisgard has generously donated eight sculptural pieces to the St. Bonaventure art collection as well as a painting titled the “Pulpit at St. Patrick’s,” which will be a part of the “Arabesque” exhibition.

Regular gallery hours at the Quick Center are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free and the center is open to the public year round. Visit the Quick Center at www.sbu.edu/quickcenter.
