Common Threads Exhibit

I had the pleasure a few weeks ago of attending the artist reception at the Common Threads exhibit at Prescott College Art Gallery at Sam Hill Warehouse.

The show runs from May 27 until June 15, 2011, so it’s pretty much over by now, but it really did look great.

The five artists included are Betty Busby, Jane Waggoner Deschner, Patricia Gould, Marjorie Durko Puryear, and me. That’s Marjorie’s framed collages to the right of mine.

The gallery itself is a beautiful space with good lighting, high ceilings and a rustic clean feel. (It looks much better in real life than in my iPhone photos.)

Curator Jen Chandler did a wonderful job of hanging the artwork not by artist, but mixed together in harmonious groups and pairs. Everything flowed so nicely. To the right above is Patricia Gould’s work. The very yellow one is my “Raps.”

Jane Descher’s stitched, altered photos are to the right of my “Am Rand des Omas Weizenfeld.” I am so pleased to have been a part of this show, and glad to have been able to see it in person.

Common Threads

I don’t think I’ve mentioned that a bunch of my landscape quilts inspired by my time living in Germany will be part of a group show in Prescott, Arizona. Why the Prescott College Art Gallery at Sam Hill Warehouse? Primarily because my sister is a teacher at the college and has been for the last decade or so. I feel like I have a teensy tiny connection to the place.

Also in the show are Jane Waggoner Deschner, Patricia Gould, Betty Busby, and Marjorie Durko Puryear. I can’t wait to see everyone’s work in person. I will be at the artist’s reception on May 27th, and then my sister and I pack up all the kids for a western adventure.
