International Artist Collaboration Flows

September 2, 2012

ARTQUILTSrivers at TIQE 12
photo by Jan-Ru Wan

A few years back, I had the pleasure of getting to know Hsin-Chen Lin while returning her work from a PAQA-South exhibit.  We talked about organizing an exhibit with both members of Professional Art Quilters Alliance – South in the US and Taiwan Art Quilt Society in Taiwan, ROC.  ARTQUILTSrivers is the result of that conversation.

Comprised of twelve panels with a river visually flowing from one panel the next, ARTQUILTSrivers illustrates the natural flow of artful communication that takes place in all societies.  Each artist is celebrated for their unique point of view, yet they all show harmoniously together.

Congratulations to all the artists of ARTQUILTSrivers

Well done!

As much as things change . . .

August 30, 2012

. . . they remain the same.

A decade later, I’m still following the same love of winter blues.  Several years ago, I made Scituate Light (on the left) for a dear friend.  This year, I created Solace for ARTQUILTSrivers, a collaborative exhibit with Professional Art Quilters – South and Taiwan Art Quilters Society.  I can’t get over the similarity of color and theme.

Be sure to visit ARTQUILTSrivers in Taiwan or Cary, NC .  Also showing with the exhibit in Cary, NC is PAQA-South’s 10th International Juried Exhibit:  ARTQUILTSwater.  Entry and exhibit information, as well as information about PAQA-South, can be found at:  www.artquiltersouth.org.

Coffee & Crepes & Art

September 22, 2010

Aah . . . the ideal venue:  Great coffee . . . to die for crepes . . . and bright colorful art!  What’s not to like!

Join me as I share my art work at  Coffee & Crepes at Crossroads Plaza in Cary, NC on Friday, September 24th from 6 -9.  Rhythmicity will play on the patio, while the good food will be cooking up inside.

And to my Gluten Free friends, almost all the crepes are available Gluten Free!!! I think I’ve found Heaven!

The works I’ve chosen to show at Coffee & Crepes cover a variety of techniques:  photo-transfer, distressed, story telling, thread painting, embellished, and more.   Got questions on how I did that?  Come on out on Friday and I’ll be happy to answer them.  Or you can leave a question in the comment section below.

If you can’t make it on Friday, my work will display at Coffee & Crepes through October 26th.  Stop by and take a look!

9/11: Respect and Remembrance

September 10, 2010

Liberty Still Endures, Ann Flaherty 2002

For now, let’s put aside the hate to respect and remember.

Respect and remember the thousands who lost their lives.

Respect and remember the brave souls who gave their lives.

Respect and remember the millions who came together in the aftermath.

We  determine the significance of 9/11.

Liberty Still Endures.

I’m Lichen It

August 23, 2010

Here’s a couple of postcards (well, almost I haven’t added the card stock backing and stitched the edges). I painted, stitched and heat distressed synthetic papers on fabric.  They remind me of lichen.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  Please leave comments.  Click the images to enlarge in a new window.
