Yesterday I attended the opening of the Contempoary Art Quilt Exhibit at The Whistler House Museum in Lowell – a really strong exhibit, well worth the trip up there.  There were two awards for Whistler’s Award this time!

 You can take in 2 or 3 fine exhibits in at the same time.  I also made a run through the NEQM to check out the The U.S. Premiere of THREADS OF RESISTANCE!

​Now through September 10, 2017 which was awesome!

Also, the Little Black Dress Annual Art Quilt                                                                     Exhibit: August 5 to Sept 23, 2017
Reception: Sat, Aug 26, 2 to 4 PM

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
