The art of quilting is on display at the John E Conner Museum at Texas A&M University-Kingsville in the annual exhibit A Celebration of Quilts. It will be in the west wing of the museum through Saturday, March 9. 

An opening reception will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, at the museum. Refreshments will be served and the event is open to the public.

This year’s exhibit features a wide variety of quilts, from traditional patterns to unique works of art. Each of the 28 pieces was created by a member of the Saturday Quilters who meet the fourth Saturday of the month at the Kleberg County Extension Building in Kingsville.

The youngest quilter is a teenager and the oldest is over 90.
