Visions Continued

Sorry I am so slow to get back to this.  I have unexpectedly been working on six new mixed-media pieces for an upcoming show at the Schack Art Gallery in Everett, WA.  I am already co-curating the “Complex Threads” exhibit  there, but got back from the trip to CA. only to discover I had been given space for more of my own work. So, I have had the “petal to the metal”. They are done! Yeah!  So back to our trip.

On Sunday, four of us artists were chosen to give a power-point presentation on our work and then be part of a panel discussion. Judith Content was the moderator, but unfortunately we didn’t get a photo of her.  She is an fabulous artist and I really enjoyed getting to meet her!

This is Charlotte Bird (standing) who is the Chair of the show, an incredible artist and a life saver! Thank you Charlotte! From left to right Linda Colish, Mary Pal and I am hidden behind Charlotte, then Charlotte Ziebarth.

 

Once the power-point was done, the four of us relaxed and laughed all the way through the panel discussion!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the poster for the show. It was such a fun experience!

 

 

Quilt Visions 2012 Brainstorm

The opening Oct 20th.

Visions new home is in a great location called Liberty Station. It’s an old military base re-purposed including hotels, restaurants, art groups and more.

The evening started with a private opening for the artists and sponsors of the show. We had an hour to greet each other before the public was invited in.  The evening was great, finally getting to put faces to people I had corresponded with, followed  their careers, and even made some new connections.

The doors once again opened to the public and then we had a “Walk and Talk”  where each artist stood by their artwork and discussed a little bit about their process in the making of their piece.

Stay tuned for the next posting which will include the panel discussion.
