Carole Harris is a fiber artist who has redefined and subverted the concepts of quilting to suit her own purposes. She extends the boundaries of the tradition beyond utilitarian usage through explorations that include other forms of stitchery, irregular shapes, textures, materials and objects. Her work has received numerous awards and has been exhibited and published extensively. Highlights include a 2014 solo exhibition at the Paint Creek Center for the Arts (Rochester, MI) and inclusion in the exhibition “The Sum of Many Parts: 25 Quiltmakers in 21st Century America” which toured China, where she was a guest lecturer.
Harris served as a 2019 Kresge Artist Fellowship panelists in Visual Arts.
