2011 - Hand painted and collaged fabric


Detail: Evidence

The opening reception for this exhibition will be held June 3 at Kunstler Gallery in Rochester, NY from 3-6 p.m.

This exhibition features work of 19 contemporary quilt artists and was curated by Pat Pauly. To read more about this exhibition follow this link: www.booksmartstudio.com/gallery


The following is my statement for Evidence.

Parallax can be defined as the apparent displacement of an observed object due to a change in the position of the observer.

Art can be much the same. A work may be seen as successful through the lens of one viewer and of no interest to another. One viewer may be drawn to EVIDENCE and see the beauty of the marks and spacial relationship and be engaged. Another viewer may walk past without more than a quick glance. The marks are still there. The relationships remain.


Thank you Pat for creating this wonderful opportunity and thank you also to the Kunstler Gallery for their support.


Thank you for spending time at Studio 24-7. I love hearing from you and Remember....

  2. I won't be able to see the exhibit in person so I'm happy to view your photos on-line. It is interesting how differently we all respond to art, as well as other things in life! My Best, joni
