Visions Art Museum


My version of a crazy quilt "Heavy Metal" - 12x12, probably because I am such a rebel. It is made out of zippers, ring trim, buttons, safety pin, flange, metal washer, silk, burn-out velvet, hand dyed fabric, sheers, lame, cotton, leather, suede, tulle, photo transfer fabric of metal items, polyester, vinyl, wool felt, and embroidery thread. It will be available for purchase.

The Crazy Quilt Challenge runs in conjunction with "Interpretations" - a juried member exhibition featuring the work of 37 artists - from Nov 4, 2011 to January 22, 2012;  
Opening reception is Friday, Nov 4th from 5-8pm
Visions Art Museum, 2825 Dewey Road, Suite 100, San Diego, CA  92106; Open Tues-Sun - 10am to 4pm.  I was one of the jurors for this exhibition!

"Urban Footscape"  (11.5 Square) for the Visions Auction on Saturday, November 19th; this is part of my Doc Marten series, in which a similar design was part of the SAQA trunk show "This is a Quilt."  It was selected along with work from 49 other artists, out of 268 entries, to be part of Michigan State University Museum's permanent collection.
