The art quilts in this display have been designed, created, crafted and machine quilted by Portsmouth artist Veronica Mays. The quilts will be on display through the month of February. Mays' passion for creating fiber art began in 2004 when she and her family moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, where she took a quilting class to learn the basics. Since 2015, she has pursued art quilting in earnest with displays in several states. She was a 2018 RI State Council on the Arts grantee. She is a graduate of RI College with a bachelor's degree in English and Theatre. In 2013, she completed her Master's Degree in Secondary Education through the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
