Upcoming Show : Disintegration and Repair at Warm Springs Gallery

Four of my foreclosure quilts will be included in the July exhibition "Disintegration and Repair" at Warm Springs Gallery in Charlottesville, VA.  I'm thrilled to be a part of a show with some talented fiber artists who I've come to know online and in person. See below to learn more about the other artists in the exhibition.

Grey Rain Sea, 152 x 157 cm by Barbara Wisnoski.
Barbara and I spent an afternoon together with our mutual friend, Myrna Tatar, last year to see Barbara's pieces at the San Jose Quilt Museum. Her work was even more impressive in person.

Forest Floor by Lotta Helleberg. Leaf printed, plant dyed linen,
wool thread, 
hand stitched. 21" x 33"
I met Lotta online last year and we had an instant connection through our work. Lotta's work is inspired by nature and is stunningly beautiful. Be sure to read Lotta's blog if you're interested in the fiber process. It's an amazing resource.

Accept by Karen Henderson. Hand woven silk, paper, rayon paper w/silk; batik, dye paint, discharge,
layered with cotton fabric, with stitching, paint and silver foil.

30” x 61”. Photograph by John Sterling Ruth
Karen uses many traditional fiber techniques including weaving, dyeing, and stitching to reflect the cycles of nature.

Strings by Margarite Gignoux. Handmade cotton paper, machine stitched and
mounted on canvas. 46" x 70"
Margarite uses a diverse variety of fabrics, papers, buttons, beads and other recycled materials to make powerful quilts that push the boundaries of the medium.

The exhibition runs from July 1st through July 31st at Warm Springs Gallery in Charlottesville, VA. There is an artist reception on Friday, July 6th from 6-8 pm. I won't be able to make it in person but I hope those of you near are able to visit.
