Art Quilt Elements

I'm thrilled to announce that my quilt “Whirlpool” has been accepted for inclusion in the Art Quilt Elements 2012 exhibit at The Wayne Art Center in suburban Philadelphia.

Forty-eight quilts were selected from 666 quilt images received from 273 applications, representing 42 states and 11 countries around the world.  There will be 28 first-time Art Quilt Elements artists.

The information from the AQE committee said that "Jurors David McFadden, Sandra Sider and Elizabeth Barton focused on elements of design, techniques, craftsmanship, and were also influenced by the quality of digital image when viewing the 666 images. They chose an exciting collection that represents the professionalism, diversity and expertise evident in this medium."

The joint National SAQA and SDA conference, Identity: Context and Reflection will be held at the Philadelphia Marriot West, Conshohocken, PA, March 30, 31 and April 1, 2012 and will coincide with the opening of the exhibit on March 30, 2012.

I see a road trip in my future!!
