The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Met is always a must see on my list. Unfortunately for me an exhibit I would have loved to see, China Through the Looking Glass, closed last week. But luckily not every thing had been removed from the galleries.
This exhibition explored the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western
fashion and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for
centuries. In this collaboration between The Costume Institute and the
Department of Asian Art, high fashion is juxtaposed with Chinese
costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to
reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery.
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
