I am thrilled to participate in this very special exhibition.   If you will be in the Washington DC / Northern Virginia area this summer, please stop by and see the show.

Here is a little more information from their website

Sacred Threads is an exhibition of quilts exploring themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. This biennial exhibition was established to provide a safe venue for quilters  who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey.  The objective is to create a dignified exhibition of artwork that touches on both spiritual and personal levels all those who view it. We want to share with others the experiences of quilters whose stories may be a source of healing and strength.

Entries were juried by Sue Reno, Sue Pierce and Diane Herbort

The Exhibition will run from June 22, 2011 - July 4, 2011

Artist’s reception: Saturday, June 25, 2011 / 2:00 - 5:00 PM

Location: Church of the Epiphany

3301 Hidden Meadow Drive

Herndon, Virginia 22071

  1. Congratulations, Kate! These artworks are wonderful. I especially remember the "story" behind "After the Wake" -- very moving. I'm sure the jurors are thrilled to have your pieces for the exhibit.

  2. Congratulations, Kate. This depiction of your sister is so moving; it surely will be an important piece in the exhibit.
