The Bridges theme statement each artist started with:

A bridge can be concrete and steel stretching for miles or a simple wooden plank across a ditch.  They can be manmade or carved by nature.  But there are also invisible bridges, those involving connection or transition. Join The Art Quilt Association on a trip across many bridges.
