International Artist Collaboration Flows

September 2, 2012

ARTQUILTSrivers at TIQE 12

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!

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.

Crystal Coast Quilters Guild Show

May 16, 2010

E Pluribus Unum II: Cultures in Cloth

It was wonderful to visit the Crystal Coast Quilters Guild 28th Annual Quilt Show this past weekend.  Not only were they hosting my ‘baby’, E Pluribus Unum II, but the guild showed the results of the Cultural Cloth workshop I taught in March, 2010.  The icing on the cake…some of my work was also appearing at the show!

E Pluribus Unum II: Cultures in Cloth, a Quiltart.com challenge, highlights the many ways we all came to be American through art quilting. With criteria of 14 inch square, and the inclusion of some form of photo-transfer, the participating artists rose to the challenge in flying colors!  Enjoy the many subjects, stories and techniques utilized in these quilts through images at the Cultural Cloth Blog, or Cultural Cloth on Facebook photo albums.  E Pluribus Unum II: Cultures in Cloth and the workshop, Cultural Cloth:  Exploring and Expressing Our Cultural Histories are available for venue near you.  Please visit www.culturalcloth.wordpress.com or email culturalcloth@gmail.com for information.
