This summer, I will exhibit artquilts at Artomatic. Click here to go to the Artomatic Site for all the details about this wonderful monthlong event. Artomatic is run by volunteer artists, and there are several hundred artists on display, along with bands performing and workshops all month long. Best of all, you can directly get to the building by using Washington DC's Metro system becasue we are right over the Navy Yard station--Note that there is very, very limted parking in the area so Metro is definitely the way to go!! DATES: May 29 through July 5.
In the meantime, here are some sneak peeks at in progress photos. I'll post finshed photos here and on my website when Artomatic opens.
Artquilt made with Batik fabrics.
What do you see? A seascape? landscape? moutains and villages?
When you look very closely at the completed piece, you can see the 9 patches--all of which are the same size. From a bit of distance, the 9 patch grid is almost invisible, but it does give subconscious structure to the piece. And, I am quite proud of the way the intersections of the 9 patches actually line up...I know that my early quilting teachers would be sooooo proud....
A very early stage of another Batik artquilt. This one is an abstract based on the central image of a doorway. At this stage, I am working from a base drawing of my own, cutting the shapes indicated by the drawing, and then playing, and playing with shapes, values and color. The final piece may or may not be close to my original drawing.
I love doorways....I photograph interesting ones that I see on my travels.
