Art Explorations

“Shadows and Flame”, new art work

Formula red


I have just completed a new quilted artwork inspired by the Call to Entry from the League of NH Craftsmen HOT STUFF exhibit that opens on January 10th in Concord, New Hampshire.  “Shadows and Flame” is a throw back to my original roots in textile art; it is a true quilt, not stretched as I have done in the recent past but instead stitched tightly with under-turned edges that reinforce a firm hanging format.

The quilt features hand painted, hand dyed and over-painted fabrics with microscopic piecing, fused reverse appliqued and detailed stitching which includes the wording for the color formulas used to make the paint colors.

Please join me on opening night of the exhibit to see this work and the other work of some other amazing artists that the League supports.  Friday, January 10th 5:00 to 7:00.  Wine tasting by LaBelle Winery.  LNHC Gallery – 49 South Main Street suite 100 , Concord, NH  603-224-3375.  Shows runs through March 21st.

  1. This is beautiful, as all your works are! Sorry, I won’t be available to join you on the 10th. I will be in Atlanta on business. Good luck with your entry; and happy New Year wishes to you and David.




  2. Wow…… you go girl! That is a gorgeous piece. So glad you are sewing! Wish I could join you for the reception. Will send positive thoughts for good weather and your way. L.
