wish you were here

 

Guest curator -V. Susan Johnson  

I thought of postcards as I searched through the gallery images. Whether they represent real or imagined places, these quilts invite me to go in search of new views--or perhaps new points of view. I chose them for the emotions I think their creators may have experienced as they brought them to life, emotions I equate with traveling to new places. And of course, all travels include thankfulness for a safe arrival home.

Adobe Mosque II
The peculiar shapes of the mud buildings in Mali are a source of inspiration for me. This work is an impression of an adobe mosque. The whole piece is covered by embroidered sort of squares to reflect all the wooden sticks used for maintaining the buildings.
