Two by Twenty, a Studio Art Quilt Associates’ juried exhibition will be shown at Road to California, Ontario, CA, January 19 – January 22. I saw this exhibit in The Netherlands and it is well worth a visit. Each of the twenty juried artists has two artworks in the exhibit. My Shagbark 3 and Shagbark 4 are included.
In person is really the only way to see how the Shagbark series was created from hundreds of small pieces cut from individually screen printed upholstery fabric samples. Nothing was fused, so you can imagine the pins (and the time) involved.
There are seven Shagbarks – see them all here.
There is a beautiful catalog available for the exhibit from SAQA, now on sale for $10.
