Upcoming Exhibitions: Windham Textile History Museum and New Britain Museum of American Art

"Honey Bee" will make its debut at the Windham Textile & History Museum on May 16, 2014. 

I made this piece especially for the Inspiration Quilts: Then and Now exhibition.  Twelve artists were invited to create a modern interpretation of one of the museum's antique quilts.

The show runs from May 16 – Sept 7, 2014
Opening Reception is May 24, 1:30 – 3:30 pm

Then later this fall…

I'm thrilled to share the news that I've been asked to loan my fiber artwork "New Year's Eve" to the prestigious New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA), for their upcoming show:

"Stitched in Time: American Quilts 1758-2014" 
October 4, 2014 – January 4, 2015

Museum curators have selected examples of masterful quilts and fiber art from over two centuries of textile history.  I can't wait to see the show and visit NBMAA's beautiful gallery.

I'm grateful to SAQA for this opportunity, because my work was brought to the attention of NBMAA by way of the Studio Art Quilt Associates' annual "Portfolio" book.

It is available for purchase through the SAQA online store.
