Art & Creativity in Quilts by Bud Slemmer

An exhibit in the Mennonite Heritage Center’s Lapp Art Gallery running May 14-June 29, 2024.

Bud loves colors, textures, styles and materials. He has been an artist in watercolor painting and is a lifetime member of the Perkiomen Valley Art Center. Bud worked for many years as a floral designer and was an active member of the Pennsylvania Lilly Society, but his greatest love is quilts. Designing new patterns in various shapes, forms, and bright colors energizes him. For this exhibit, Bud used various materials from silk neckties to oriental patterns, and colorful cottons. He pieces together items such as bed or table covers, runners, and potholders, in various shapes and sizes. His technique and required accuracy are exceptional. You do not want to miss experiencing the color and vibrancy of Bud’s work!
