Women in Fiber

Today I am delivering six pieces to the Women in Fiber show at Marietta (OH) College.  I am thrilled to have work in the show, and very happy to go to Marietta, one of my favorite places in the region.  It was the first permanent settlement in the Northwest Territory and sits at the junction of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers.  The local architecture is beautiful, and I enjoy visiting the area whenever I have an excuse.

Here is a preview of some of the work:

005

Red and White #4  patchwork, applique, machine quilting, beads and sequins.  Commercial cottons, commercial hand-dyed cottons (the wonderful grays are from Judy at Just Imagination).

Marilyn

Route 33 Summer Morning

Route 33, Summer Morning patchwork, applique, machine quilting.  Commercial cottons, hand-dyed silk, tulle, polyester batting.

The show runs through February 21st, and I am planning on attending the opening on Saturday January 23rd, from 6-8pm.  If you are in the area, drop by and introduce yourself.  I’ll be wearing green.

Those are pretty great. Saw an amazing textile-based show the other day - Josh Faught, at the Lisa Cooley Gallery in NYC. Check it out.

Thank you! And thank you for the link. I was over at your blog, I too am a wimpy boycotter, with one exception. Fight the power! ;)
