The Opening Reception for ArtQuilt Elements is this Saturday, April 17, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  The exhibit continues through May 19 at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA.

ArtQuilt Elements is considered one of the top three art quilt exhibitions in the U.S.   A full color catalog is available.

Boundary Waters 48 is one of seven artwork in a mini-series within the Boundary Waters series. The artworks explore Nature’s ability to construct complexity from simplicity while referencing in an abstract manner this specific scene from the Boundary Waters. Note from the photo that I have had this concept on my mind for almost a year now.

The International Quilt Festival- Chicago opens tonight from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. and continues through Sunday.  My artwork will be in two exhibits:

Exhibit opening in Arizona

Boundary Waters 32

Art Quilts XIII: Lucky Break, a juried exhibition of contemporary art quilts, will be on display November 7-December 31, 2008, at the Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Ave, Chandler, AZ.

Admission is free.  Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. An opening reception featuring many of the artists, and the music of jazz guitarist Pete Pancrazi, takes place Friday, Nov. 7, from 7-9 p.m. Admission to this special event also is free.

“This year’s exhibition includes works of artists from four countries, the United States, Canada, Belgium and Israel. The pieces were selected to represent the very wide range of techniques and design solutions artists use today to create contemporary pieces.  Those techniques range from painting and monoprinting to photo transfer and machine piecing,” says juror/organizer Diane Howell, a Chandler resident.  It is estimated that approximately 10,000 people view the show every year.

Boundary Waters 32 is 21″h x 66″w.  It is like the other work in the Boundary Waters series in that it is constructed of white cotton fabric, acrylic textile paint, and thread, but different in that it is stitched to within an inch of its life.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is known for its cliffs and rocky outcroppings, worked in endless layers by erosion, volcanic activity, and glaciers. Huge sheet of granite were broken, tilted and folded beginning over 2.7 billion years ago.  The end result is the wonderful landscape my sister and I are privileged to enjoy as we paddle along:  long narrow lakes, jagged shorelines and towering cliffs.
