By From page A11 | November 11, 2011

Davis resident Marlene Bloomberg’s artwork is included in the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles’ “Collecting California” exhibit, which highlights pieces from the museum’s collection.

“Collecting California” will be on exhibit from Nov. 15 through Feb. 5 and features quilts and textiles drawn from the museum’s permanent collection by contemporary California artists.

The exhibit “showcases the rich variety, legacy and continued evolution of the California fiber art movement,” the museum website says.

“This exhibition focuses on an important aspect of our collecting mission — to honor and support local fiber artists and art history by documenting and preserving California’s textile art for the future,” the website says.

The museum is at 520 S. First St. in San Jose. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, with extended hours from 7 to 11 p.m. on the first Friday of every month. For more information, call (408) 971-0323 or email [email protected]

Bloomberg also included in this year’s Center for Contemporary Art of Sacramento’s Art Auction. The event begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at 128 K St. in Old Sacramento. Tickets are $25 each.
