Blending Poetry and Cloth


Blending Poetry and Cloth entries required that the artist reference a piece of poetry, a song or a quotation in creating their composition. Poetry and art have been inextricably linked for as long as they have both been in existence - one illuminating the other and requiring the use of multiple senses.

Powerful combinations are created when the two art forms come together in thought provoking ways – one breathing life into the other. Forty-five quilts were juried into the show and are now traveling Oregon for the next two years.
