ST. BONAVENTURE, NY — Although the galleries at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts are not open for viewing, the St. Bonaventure University arts center has gathered a few artists from a popular exhibition for a virtual presentation.

The Quick Center for the Arts had originally planned to exhibit “3D EXPRESSION,” a traveling exhibition from the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), through May 15. After opening in February, it quickly became a favorite of gallery visitors. 

The three-dimensional fiber exhibition features more than 40 works from artists around the world.
