I had been told prior to my first SDA conference, that the Member Show would be a highlight of the artwork I would see while in Kansas City. As usual, my astute friend was right, it was beautiful with some amazingly innovative and, beautiful, artwork. All artwork was 18" x 18" as stipulated by the requirements. Here are a sampling of my favorites:
Comfort and Peace; hemp (traditional funeral fabric), perle cotton & synthetic thread; technique: rust dyed, hand stitched, French knots, © Shin-Hee Chin
Sunset Composition; cotton, silk, perle cotton; technique: hand dyed, screen printing, discharged, hand & machine stitched; © Gerrie Congdon
O.K., it looks like I have quite a few more favorites than I thought, so I'll stop here and pick up the rest in a later post. Enjoy!
