Lately, I’ve been about a football field length behind where I should be, and this posting is no exception.
While I was away this fall, the SAQA Art Cloth North exhibition at the Blue Holloman Gallery opened. This past weekend, I had a chance to visit and see the work for myself. If you are in Anchorage, please go see the work in person. You know it’s always better live. Plus the shopping at Blue Holloman is so good–beautiful art and craft at all price points.
This is Blue Holloman.
For all of the information about this show, you can read the photo. The abbreviated version is that Art Cloth North is a juried show featuring the art of the Alaska members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA).
My piece LITE BRITE shares the wall with two whimsical pieces by Nan Thompson.
Approaching Inferno by Ree Nancarrow graces the next wall over. Ree is a very well know Alaskan fiber artist. I met her many years ago when I I was selling oven mitts at an art fair. She shared that she too had sold oven mitts. Hearing her say that made me think–I can do this too! I can be an art quilter.
Amy Meisner’s small three dimensional piece called Inner Life is made of wool fiber and found objects.
Isadora Raven and The Last Thing the Mouse Saw were created by Cat Larrea.
Wendy Smith Wood‘s two pieces Frozen Through and Winter’s Breath most likely has traditionalists scratching their heads. I don’t know that I would call these quilts, but they sure are beautiful.
The far wall, featured to pieces by Diane Melms and an early Color Grid quilt of mine.
I likes the quilting on Protected Temple by Z. Denise Gallup.
I am not sure how this happened, but I failed to photograph Gail Ramsey’s bicycle quilts individually. No pumpkin pie for me.
You have until next Wednesday December 2nd. Just do it.
