It’s always exciting when a new survey book about art quilts arrives at my house. It’s even more exciting when my artwork is included. Art Quilts International: Abstract & Geometric by Martha Sielman has long interviews with 29 artists and 97 artists with artwork showcased in the galleries. It’s an honor to be included as Sielman received over 1300 submissions.
My artwork is Shagbark 2 and was placed beautifully next to artwork by Elena Stokes:
It’s a gorgeous book with plenty to occupy the mind and eye. Of course there are many outlets from which you may purchase this 224-page book. But if you buy directly from Studio Art Quilt Associates, you will receive five notecards AND 45% of the purchase price supports SAQA.
Studio Art Quilt Associates will also be publishing Art Quilt Retrospective, covering art quilts and artists from 1960 through today. The introduction will be written by Janet Koplos, a senior editor at Art in America from 1990-2009. Here are the juried artists. I’ll share more info when I receive it as I’m not even sure at this point which artwork of mine will be included. It really is an honor to be included.
