Two by Twenty is two exhibits in one. The first is a pairing of two art quilts by the same artist. Some are variations on a theme. With the same technique and subject matter, the artists explore subtle variations in line, color or texture to fully understand the material. Some pairs have a narrative element between them. The time of day has changed, or the viewpoint has shifted. These little differences invite the viewer to engage with the work in a kind of “first — then,” or “spot the differences” game. The second exhibit is the variety overall amongst all the artists.
The pieces as a whole demonstrate the wide range of approaches in the quilt art genre. From bold and graphic to subtle explorations of texture and nuance, there is plenty to explore in this collection.
The catalog for this exhibit is EXCELLENT and available here.
Clover and a Bee
Concrete and Grasslands, a juried exhibition of artwork by members of Studio Art Quilt Associates will premier June 10 – July 29, 2016 at Grant’s Pass Art Museum in Grant’s Pass, Oregon (USA).
Concrete and Grassland explores the juxtaposition of the natural landscape and the human constructed cityscape. This call for entry asked artists to submit works that explore either the soft lines of nature or the hard lines of urban structures—or a combination of both. This exhibit will focus on the contrasts of both color and line, and the ways in which the natural world has been altered.
