Show Opening

My show opening was a great success – a huge thank you to everyone who came out and supported me and my work. I’m updating my website with all of the new artwork over the next week, so be sure and visit there to see all the work in the show as well as my older pieces.
In the meantime, here is a shot of the east wall:


And the series “Fragments”:



Each is 6” x 6” and are honoring my grandmother with the fragments of leather gloves, along with industrial and unprocessed wool felt; machine embroidery.

New York Park Armory Red & White Quilt Show


You may have seen the overall image of the amazing four day show at the Park Armory in NYC. It was put on by the Folk Art Museum and consisted of over 650 quilts owned by collector Joanna Rose. She’s been collecting red and white quilts since 1956. Here is a slide show so you can see some of the quilts in detail. You can read interviews with one of the co-curators and the head of the exhibition design company here and here.
