Quilts at the Memorial Art Gallery
After touring the Memorial Art Gallery this summer, I chose O'Keeffe's Fungus and Jawbone to use as my inspiration to create a small art quilt for the MAG's show and sale that's being held in conjunction with the current Wild by Design exhibit. Thirty area quilters created 36 small quilts, each displayed near the art work which inspired them.
My piece, "Fractured Fungus," was sold at last night's opening.
The Gift Gallery at the MAG has also started to display some additional small quilts made by area artists.
My small "Flying Kites" piece, with its green, yellow and orange hand-dyed fabrics, is displayed to the left of Pat Pauly's "Broken Chair" quilt.
My "Receding C's" quilt is shown at the bottom right of the picture. The four framed pieces above it were made by Jeanne Beck.
"Jet Trails #2" is in an arrangement on the table.
"SW Monuments" is displayed on the front table.
