The Mayor’s Gallery of Stamford warmly welcomes Margaret Cibulsky with her first solo exhibition featuring original quilts as art intended to be hung on a wall. The emphasis is on design rather than functionality. The exhibition runs from July 11th through September 7th 2022. There will be an artist’s reception on Monday July 25th from 5:30- 7:00 pm from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM which is open to the public.

Stamford based Margaret Cibulsky learned how to operate a sewing machine watching her mother make garments and practical items such as curtains. After losing her husband to cancer, Ms. Cibulsky’s first foray into quilting was joining a church group that made comfort quilts for seriously ill congregants. Her first original quilt was a tribute to her husband and the life they had made together. The fabrics came from her husband’s clothing and is a place holder for past memories and future hopes.

Ms. Cibulsky is a self-taught quilter who learned from other members of the NYC Metro Modern Guild, books, blogs and then workshops. Before that she taught kindergarten and first grade for 32 years but now devotes herself to designing and making quilts.

Margaret moved to Stamford in 2018, is a member of the Modern Quilt Guild, NYC Metro Modern Quilters and is Co-President of the Northern Star Quilters in Westchester.
