Two Quilts In

While I was away on vacation, the jurying results for Art Quilts XII: Current were posted. This show is in Chandler, AZ and is curated by Diane Howell. The show will hang at the Chandler Center for the Arts from October 12 through December 1, 2007.

I'm very pleased that two of my pieces were chosen to hang in this show.

Sun Dance 50" x 50"




Downtown 44"L x 51"W

Both are constructed with cotton and silk that I dyed and painted, using a multitude of surface design techniques on Sun Dance. Both pieces are enhanced with flung paint and spatters and quilted in grids of various sizes and colors of thread.

At the moment I have entries out to four other venues, but the earliest I will hear from any of them is the middle of October. And I really need to get back into the studio and WORK!

I love both of these! Congrats. I didn't get in this year, but am not surprised. I really didn't have anything available that was au courant. I need to get some work done so that I have some stuff worth entering!! Good luck in the next venues.

These are both glorious works of art! I especially love the red one. I just love silks and I like your idea of using them together with cottons.
