4.  Eye of the Quilter:  Inspiration – A photography exhibit with the theme of reflections.

This is a sister photo to the one accepted to the exhibit.

5.  Sightlines

I happily served as juror for Sightlines and was honored to choose the fourteen artists.  Each artist was invited to create an installation of artworks featuring a sightline linking all the artwork in the exhibit.  Each artist chose her own themes and created five to eight artworks, including four 8×8″ linking pieces, covering a ten foot wide space. Perhaps the required continuous line provided provocation, both conscious and unconscious, to the artists to focus on time, personal history, and memory.

Hardcover catalog with six-page gatefold showcasing the exhibit as it will be shown is available.

Please note that Clairan Ferrano is the Managing Curator of the exhibit.  The tACTile group of Australia introduced this concept to SAQA with an exhibit entitled eyeline.

Exhibit opening and interesting catalog available

The Beneath the Surface exhibit premiers tonight at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, CA.  This juried invitational was co-curated by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison.

You may order the catalog here OR Jamie and Leslie will be signing and selling the book throughout IQF.  All the details are here.

Each artist is given a page for a Q and A as well as a page featuring their artwork.  It’s the kind of catalog that I appreciate as an artist as it allows me to share something about myself and my artwork.

My artwork for this exhibit was quite a departure from my usual way of working. As I stated in an earlier blog post, “I am admittedly in love with it because it is a perfect manifestation of my intent, my message, and my theme.”   Read more about that as well as my artist statement for the artwork here.
