Akron Leader Publications
From April 21-September 6, 2009, the American Folk Art Museum's first one person exhibition highlighting the work of a contemporary quilt artist was KALEIDOSCOPE QUILTS: The Art of Paula Nadelstern. "Paula Nadelstern has achieved international recognition for her innovative and complex designs inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images. Her artistic vision encompasses science, history, and tradition, expressed in crystalline patterns composed of slivers of jewel-like fabrics."
