The exhibition features 38 quilt artworks that incorporate paints, maps, buttons, beads, found objects, dischargedĀ fabrics (color removal from previously-dyed material), and fabrics ranging from hand-dyed to commercially-dyed. Beyond the Block showcases 26 Northwest artists.

A free artist reception with light refreshments will take place 4 to 6 p.m, Nov. 19 at City Hall.
