Extreme challenge

Last winter, Eileen Alber, owner of Quilters’ Studio in Newbury Park, California, gave each of us in our minigroup, The Extreme Quilters, a piece of thin, shiny plastic and challenged us to make an art quilt that she would hang on her walls during the coming Quilters Run.

With the thoughtful input of my cat, Tom, and some painted Tyvek, I made a little 8″ x 13″ piece depicting one of my favorite subjects, a cityscape.

The Space Between

Yesterday I found out that my art quilt, “Sedimentary Silk,” made from the tie-transfer process described in an earlier posting, has been juried into The Space Between, an annual exhibit curated by Dinner at Eight Artists Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison and sponsored this year by Moore’s Sewing Centers.  The art quilt won’t be shown on my website or blog until it appears first at the International Quilt Festival/Long Beach, California, July 29–31, 2011.  There will be forty fabulous art quilts, and I am honored at the company I will be keeping in this exhibit!

Homeless exhibit causes a stir!

Studio Art Quilts Association currently has a traveling exhibit called “No Place to Call Home.”  This week, as part of a Mancuso show in Virginia (my home state), it made the news when some visitors to the show took offensive at one of our quilts.  If we are striving to be part of the fine art world, I say this confirms we are getting there!  As for myself, I am proud to be a part of the show with my piece, “Quiet…Homeless Sleeping.” Here is a link to the newscast about the controversy:

I’m very excited today that my quilt, Tucked Away, was selected by Houston House and Home magazine to be featured in the listing for the Houston International Quilt Festival, going on this week in Houston, Texas.  The quilt was in last year’s show, and the art director of the magazine saw a photo of it and wanted to use it in this year’s advertising of the show.  The best part is that they listed my name and website address!  Here’s a link to the online version:

Here is a link to the Beneath the Surface exhibit:  I was very happy to see my art quilt on this page because there were a total of 37 altogether in the exhibit.  YEA!!!

Long Beach Quilt Festival

Yesterday was my annual visit to the International Quilt Festival/Long Beach 2010.  In addition to having two of my photographs on display in the Eye of the Quilter photography exhibit, I was honored to have one of my art quilts included in the invitational juried exhibit entitled Beneath the Surface.

Because I was so fascinated by the artist interviews on the Dinner at Eight Artists’ blog, I put together a catalog of the exhibit, including photos of the quilts, the artists, and their interviews, gathered by the exhibit curators, Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison.

After Long Beach, the exhibit will be on its way to the International Quilt Market/Houston for the opening October 30.

My newest art quilt to be in SAQA exhibit

My latest work, entitled, Quiet–Homeless Sleeping has been juried into the Studio Art Quilt Associates exhibit No Place to Call Home.  This exhibit will travel to Manchester, New Hampshire; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Santa Clara, California, West Palm Beach, Florida; Hampton, Virginia; Somerset, New Jersey; and Denver, Colorado over the coming year as part of the Mancuso Brothers shows.

I hand dyed and shiboried all the fabrics (except the scraps from the Salvation Army) using the same color dye.  Also included are some paper transfers, a new medium for me.

I am thrilled and honored to be part of this because it’s the first art quilt I’ve had in a SAQA show.  The theme deals with the plight of the homeless, and my quilt includes photos I’ve taken in Venice Beach, California and in Paris, France, of some of the homeless I’ve encountered.
