Art Quilts    

California / Nevada

Welcome to a “no-rules” exhibition. There was no specific theme, no minimum size requirement, no insistence on recent completion, just a single-minded focus on gathering together the best of contemporary quilt art from the members of Studio Art Quilts Associates throughout California and Nevada. It has been a pleasure to curate such a freewheeling display.

Passages    

"Passages" can be an exploration of a moment captured in time or the instant of movement from one state to another. Whether it is thought as anon or a verb "Passages" allowed the artist the freedom to conceive a work which is representational or abstract.
