I am thrilled that my piece (see below), “Facing Down The Pandemic: The Cubist Scream” was chosen for the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) juried virtual gallery exhibit, On The Edge. The exhibit was posted on the SAQA.com website on July 1, 2020. I am honored to have had my piece chosen among such a wonderful selection of art.
I am excited that my work was part of an Artistry in Fibre exhibit (along with my colleagues Linda Waddle and Lin Schiffner) at the Dyke Gallery, Pacific Grove Art Center, 568 Lighthouse Avenue, Pacific Grove, CA 93950. The exhibit opened on November 6, 2020 and closed on December 17, 2020. Unfortunately, due to health & safety concerns associated with COVID-19, an opening reception was not held. However, the exhibit was well received with many visitors to the gallery.
I enjoyed curating a showcase exhibit, managed and organized by the SAQA Local Connections group for the Greater Sacramento/Foothills region. The showcase, entitled Artists in Residence: Sheltering In the Time of the Pandemic, exhibited forty 12×12 pieces inspired as a result of the pandemic. The showcase exhibit opened at the Blue Line Arts, 405 Vernon Street, Roseville, CA 95678, on November 20, 2020 and closed on January 3, 2021. It was a rousing success.
I am delighted to have been invited to give an online lecture at the Pajaro Valley Quilt Association (PVQA), located in Santa Cruz County, California, in April 2021. The lecture will be on ZOOM, held on Monday, April 12, 2021.
