Three Old PalsIlse Anysas-Salkauskas  • Cochrane, Alberta, Canada
Three Old Pals
26 x 38 inches - $2000


Ancient red granaries dot the plains of the province of Alberta, and time is taking its toll. These three granaries, abandoned and pelted by many years of stormy weather, look like three old pals depending on each other and standing in the middle of a rough field.

Tin Soldiers

Ilse Anysas-Salkauskas  • Cochrane, Alberta, Canada
Tin Soldiers
26 x 38 inches - $2000

The old metal granaries are being displaced by the newer, larger, and stronger metal structures seen on the large fields of corporate farms. When the strong Alberta Chinook winds blow, the empty structures rattle and moan — tin soldiers on the march off to oblivion.


The TriangleTeresa Barkley  •  Maplewood, New Jersey, USA
The Triangle
36 x 36 inches - $6500

The triangle is a shape often used in patchwork. It also represents the Greek letter “delta,” used as a symbol for change. When it is capitalized, “The Triangle” represents The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory — the site of a devastating fire that claimed the lives of 146 workers, mostly women, on March 25, 1911, in New York City. In the aftermath of the fire, changes were made to provide for greater workplace safety. This quilt includes 100 triangles to commemorate the centennial of the fire. It was designed to resemble a postage stamp.

A Grand Centennial

Teresa Barkley  •  Maplewood, New Jersey, USA
A Grand Centennial
36 x 33 inches - $6500

A Grand Centennial celebrates the past, present, and future of Grand Central Terminal, New York City. Designed as a centennial commemorative postage stamp, the top portion depicts the sun, moon, stars, and the constellation ceiling. The middle section depicts the Main Concourse windows. The left window represents the past, as a missile was displayed there in 1957. The right window suggests the future, with service to Long Island represented by the Montauk Lighthouse. The bottom portion depicts the underground levels, with trains and the Oyster Bar. The acorn is a motif throughout the quilt and the Terminal.


Pat Bishop - Walk of the CranesPat Bishop  •  Appleton, Wisconsin, USA
Walk of the Cranes
30 x 40 inches - $3600

This piece was inspired by a photograph I took at my parents cottage several years ago. I knew I wanted to use it for inspiration, but it took me awhile to figure out how I would approach it. This family of cranes — Mom, Dad and the two kids — would pass through the property many mornings scavenging for their breakfast.

Pat Bishop - Gawking CranesPat Bishop  •  Appleton, Wisconsin, USA
Gawking Cranes
41 x 39 inches - $3600

 Another view of three members of the crane family from a photograph taken at my parents lake cottage, looking at me gawking at them.

 


Sandra Townsend Donabed - Tune In Turn On: Drop Cloth 2Sandra Townsend Donabed  •  Jupiter, Florida, USA
Tune In Turn On - Drop Cloth 2
29 x 29 inches - $900

Starting with a dropcloth and some images of WWI soldiers, I changed both into a set of small quilts. Here a soldier works on the living room floor of his temporary home on the base, assembling his patchwork quilt and getting it ready to be sent out to a group of local Amish women for quilting. He uses the quiet contemplative time to let his mind wander to his family and former life near the beach.

Sandra Townsend Donabed - Tune In Turn On: Drop Cloth 2Sandra Townsend Donabed  •  Jupiter, Florida, USA
Tune In Turn On - Drop Cloth 5
29 x 29 inches - $900

This is a group project — the whole unit has different ideas on how this quilt should be completed. The best thing to do is brainstorm on how to quilt the top and whether it should be embellished or not. A consensus is finally reached and work commences. This will be raffled off to raise funds for the local orphanage.

 


Jane Dunnewold - Feather Study 4Jane Dunnewold  •  San Antonio, Texas, USA
Feather Study 4
30 x 36 inches - $1000


The Feather/Bone Studies originated as photographs taken with a digital microscope, combined with photos of skeletons in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. Altered and printed on cloth, subjects vanish in mirror-imaged, elaborate patterning. Living creatures contribute to the sacred balance between seen and unseen; close up and far away. These pieces reference intricate patterns and relationships, which are missed if we don’t pay attention.

 


Jane Dunnewold - Feather and BoneJane Dunnewold  •  San Antonio, Texas, USA
Feather and Bone
31 x 34 inches - $1000

Photograph taken by digital microscope, altered, cropped and commercially printed, machine quilted and embroidered, screen printed with gel medium and sand.

 


Rahel Elran - Primordials #5Rahel Elran  •  Tel Aviv, Israel
Primordials #5
50 x 31 inches - $700

In this series, I imagined the creatures which roamed on our planet before the creation of the human race. For me, these creatures symbolize the hope for transformation, new life, and novel open horizons. They are colorful, vivid, and full of life. This piece is about primordial life submerged in deep water.

Rahel Elran - Primordials #6Rahel Elran  •  Tel Aviv, Israel
Primordials #6
50 x 38 inches - $750

This piece is about the era when creatures crawled out of the water onto the earth.

 


Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry - Reflections of Cowichen #1Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry 
•  Port Townsend, Washington, USA
Reflections of Cowichen #1
30 x 30 inches - $3400


In the summer of 2013, we chartered a boat and spent ten days cruising in the San Juan and Canadian Gulf islands north of our home on Puget Sound. One of our favorite ports was Cowichan, British Columbia, where the harbor was dominated by the headquarters of the Cowichan Wooden Boat Society which had railings that cast dramatic shadows in the water beneath. In the late evening, everything was black and white. By zooming in on the reflections I found dramatic images that looked like abstract expressionist paintings.

Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry - Reflections of Cowichen #2Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry  •  Port Townsend, Washington, USA
Reflections of Cowichen #2
30 x 30 inches - $3400


This is the reverse image of Reflections of Cowichen #1.

 


Deborah Fell - Passage of Time: Braunschweig 1Deborah Fell
•  Urbana, Illinois, USA
Passage of Time: Braunschweig 1
26 x 25 inches - $1200


The digital photo transfers of fragmented buildings in Braunschweig, Germany, demonstrate the beautiful dichotomy of ageing and weathering. The passage of time leaves its footprints in every aspect of our world and reminds us that flaws, scars, and deterioration can be lovely witnesses to endurance.
 

Deborah Fell - Passage of Time: Braunschweig 2 Deborah Fell •  Urbana, Illinois, USA
Passage of Time: Braunschweig 2
26 x 25 inches - $1200

Apparent in many forms, decay documents the longevity of buildings, bridges, and our bodies. We look in a mirror and see the lines that are proof of our living with sorrow and joy. We look at the underside of a bridge and see the decay wrapped in rust. Buildings slowly give way to the test of time. Decomposition is a celebration of living and being. What remains from decay can indicate strength, endurance, and longevity, allowing us to appreciate the passage of time.


Sandy Gregg - Call for Entry 2 Sandy Gregg  •  Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
Call for Entry 2
44 x 35 inches - $2000

Exhibits are advertised to artists by a document with the title of “Call for Entry.” This piece is a literal reconstruction of one such document using unique materials.

Sandy Gregg - Call for Entry 4Sandy Gregg  •  Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
Call for Entry 4
40 x 35 inches - $1750

This piece is a literal reconstruction of a call for entry that was canceled.


Marjan Kluepfel - Forest FancyMarjan Kluepfel  Davis, California, USA
Forest Fancy
37 x 25 inches - $900


The texture, color, and prints of fabrics fascinate me and often give me inspiration for a new design. Most of my designs are organic. They are influenced by my love of nature and all its wonders. I fancy forests to always look like this...

Marjan Kluepfel - Forest FireMarjan Kluepfel Davis, California, USA
Forest Fire
37 x 25 inches - $900

I live in California where we are experiencing a severe drought for the fourth year in a row. As a result my “forest fancy” too often turns into a “forest fire.”


Mary-Ellen Latino - Travel Muse: El Burro 1Mary-Ellen Latino Northborough, Massachusetts, USA
Travel Muse: El Burro 1
36 x 36 inches - $1800

I was walking along a hilly, narrow path cradled by the Andes Mountains when I noticed a faded image of a donkey on a boulder with layers of peeling paint ravaged by time. Through Photoshop I brought this “rock art” to new life and with shibori I obscured areas to depict the influences of time. The donkey personifies the qualities of determination, service to others, and an undying faith in the creative force.

Mary-Ellen Latino - Travel Muse: El Burro 2Mary-Ellen Latino Northborough, Massachusetts, USA
Travel Muse: El Burro 2
36 x 36 inches - $1800

El Burro 2 has subtle differences from El Burro 1 in movement, position of the donkey, and shibori markings. With a deep dedication to the universe, the donkey has worked together with humans for centuries, responsible for carrying supplies throughout the jungle and the transportation of people. I celebrate this simple creature known as donkey, burro, beast of burden...


Déda Maldonado - Everglades Déda Maldonado •  Miami, Florida, USA
Everglades
28 x 33 inches - NFS

The Tamiami Trail runs straight through the Everglades. Much of it is surrounded by wetlands and canals. Airboats are a very common mode of travel in these waters. This scene shows an airboat floating by on tranquil waters on a calm moonlit evening in the Everglades. I was proud it was chosen that year to represent the Swamp Heritage Festival at Big Cypress Preserve, Everglades National Park, Florida.

Deda Maldonado - Flight at NightDéda Maldonado •  Miami, Florida, USA
Flight at Night
27 x 35 inches - $2000

I have always loved water, dolphins and the moon — what better way to show the beauty of all three.


Barbara McKie - Botswana`s Beautiful BirdBarbara McKie •  Lyme, Connecticut, USA
Botswana’s Beautiful Bird
32 x 31 inches - $2500

When I was on a trip in Botswana, I was amazed to be able to photograph this Lilac Crested Roller, which is the national bird.

 
Barbara McKie - KookaburraBarbara McKie •  Lyme, Connecticut, USA
Kookaburra
26 x 36 inches - $2600

While eating lunch in Sydney, Australia, a kookaburra bird joined us and ate some scraps.


Elizabeth Michellod-Dutheil - XY: First Day of CreationElizabeth Michellod-Dutheil Villette/le Châble, Valais, Switzerland
XY – First Day of Creation
50 x 27 inches - $1500


This work is part of my series Seven Days of Creation and represents the beginning of the creation of the world. The world is blank since it has been created that day from nothing. Antique trimmings represent sperm which will create humanity.

 

Elizabeth Michellod-Dutheil - The Threshold of Life: Fourth Day of CreationElizabeth Michellod-Dutheil  •  Villette/le Châble, Valais, Switzerland
The Threshold of Life – Fourth Day of Creation
50 x 27 inches - $1500

 This is the day God gave the keys of the universe to humanity and told them to multiply.

 


Beth Miller - HollycocksBeth Miller • Australian Capital Territory, Australia
Hollyhocks
44 x 33 inches- NFS

The old-fashioned flower, Hollyhocks, can be found in all types of gardens. The upright stem supports many flowers that open from the bottom bud first and then progress to the top. The stamen often has pollen that falls across the flower petals to create an interesting contrast between the two.

 

Beth Miller - Sweet PeaBeth Miller • Australian Capital Territory, Australia
Sweet Pea
44 x 33 inches- NFS

The Sweet Pea is a highly perfumed and long-lasting delicate flower that has value in the garden and as a cut flower. The fast-growing plant latches itself onto the trellis with fine tendrils, in this case supported by bamboo poles.

 


Simona Peled - ArchitectureSimona Peled  • Tel-Aviv, Israel
Tactile Architecture
37 x 29 inches - NFS

Modern architecture of large and densely populated cities impresses by its beauty. Very often the neon signs on the smooth and cold façades, and the multitudes of billboards along the streets involuntarily become calls to violence. But I believe that common sense and great architecture will help to avoid this.

 

Simona Peled - PlanningSimona Peled  • Tel-Aviv, Israel
Planning
37 x 24 inches - NFS

Once this place was a beautiful forest, and now there are modern houses instead. Streets and roads were built. But I still believe that with all this planning we won’t forget about nature, and we’ll live in harmony with it.


Donna Radner - Earth, Water and Stone #1Donna Radner •  Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA
Earth, Water and Stone #1
41 x 24 inches - $1500


The inspiration for these two quilts was a photo of a slab of stone, which suggested the wearing away of the stone by the forces of nature over time. The surface of the stone was worn away by the elements of rain, water, storms and possibly the shifting of the ground itself.

Donna Radner - Earth, Water and Stone #2Donna Radner  •  Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA
Earth, Water and Stone #2
41 x 27 inches - $1500

I designed Earth, Water and Stone #2 first and then composed Earth, Water and Stone #1 to link up to it through the gold strip curving between the two pieces. The movement of color in #2 influenced the design of #1 so they would fit together but remain two separate pieces as well.


Maya Schonenberger - Ice Maya Schonenberger   •  Miami, Florida, USA  
Ice
49 x 26 inches - $1900


Ice is part of my series “Climate Change”. The piece combines two of my passions, hiking and skiing. Through both activities, summer and winter, I can see and experience firsthand how our glaciers are melting.

Maya Schonenberger - Ice 2 Maya Schonenberger  •  Miami, Florida, USA  
Ice 2
49 x 34 inches - $2100

Ice 2 is part of my Climate Change series. Visiting glaciers in the heat of the summer while hiking gives me a much closer and more colorful impression than literally gliding over them when I ski in the middle of winter.


Virginia A. Spiegel - Shagbark 3Virginia A. Spiegel   •  Byron, Illinois, USA
Shagbark 3
24 x 36 inches - $1490


A great leaning hickory tree has bark peeling back to reveal layers and layers of color and texture. More beautiful and alive in winter with its cinnamon-red inner bark contrasting with a dusting of snow than when covered with a green canopy of leaves in summer.

Virginia A. Spiegel - Shagbark 4Virginia A. Spiegel   •  Byron, Illinois, USA
Shagbark 4
24 x 36 inches - $1490

 A dusting of snow highlights the colors of the inner bark from the palest tan to the darkest blue.


Janice Stevens - Urban Jungle
Janice Stevens   •  
Koh Samui, Suratthani, Thailand
Urban Jungle
42 x 27 inches - $3000


Based on one of my photographs from Burma, this image conveys the effects of the passage of time. The rusting of the metal cookie cans and the mold and algae on the cement surfaces immediately inform us of their prolonged exposure to the elements.
 

Janice Stevens - Urban TransportationJanice Stevens   •   Koh Samui, Suratthani, Thailand
Urban Transportation
32 x 39 inches - $3000

This image of a bicycle rickshaw from Burma speaks to the passage of time by its gradual obsolescence. It is being replaced by motorized transportation and is becoming a rarity. Although the wall in the background continues into the distance, the rickshaw remains stationary and abandoned.
