This quilt, WHERE EARTH AND SKY MEET, will be part of the exhibit “A Walk in the Wild” at the Open Space Visitors Center in Albuquerque, NM. The opening reception is November 10, 2012 from 3 – 5 pm.
The concept of the exhibit is unique, as each of the quilts, all designed to be tall and narrow (mine is 72 inches tall and 18 inches wide), will be hung from the ceiling. The subject of each quilt is the New Mexico landscape and the back of each quilt is black, so as you walk through the installation you will feel as if you are taking a “walk in the wild”. The exhibition also has a selection of quilts, “Enchanted Threads”, that will grace the walls of the gallery.
I am looking forward to the opening reception, not only to see the variety of quilts on display, but also to connect with the other SAQA New Mexico members and discuss the process of their creations.
My quilt represents two aspects of living in New Mexico. Both are very special to me…long range views and beautiful sunset colors…each addressed in fabric and stitch…from the studio
I love it, still amazes me what you do with fabric.
Thanks much. I am anxious to see how it looks with the others in the exhibit. Sue
Although I have seen hundreds and hundreds of quilts and patchworks in my life this is great. My wife was very interested in this how beautiful it is. Of course we know the techniques how to do this.
Thank you for a wonderful compliment. I’m pleased your wife is enjoying the quilt. Sue
Beautiful work. thank you for sharing it. Very inspiring!
Thank you, Marjorie. I think this exhibit has such an interesting concept and the required proportions of the quilt forced me to think of how to work with color, as is usual for me, and how to make a more abstract design look like a landscape. It was a bit challenging for me, but I am pleased with the outcome. Sue
As I scrolled down the the photo of your piece on my computer screen I was thinking Africa, Egypt, cave paintings, ancient art and letters. Stunning!
This is so beautiful.
