Textile Arts Today at Synopsys
Today I visited a show at Synopsys, a software company in Silicon Valley. The show was curated by Carol Dabb, and part of the proceeds from any sales will go to the San Jose Museum of Quilts. Two of my quilts are in the show. I was only able to see part of the exhibit, since the quilts are spread around three buildings and we were only allowed into one of them today. But you can see all of the quilts at http://www.sjquiltmuseum.org/synopsys/index.html.
My quilts were both made at Art Quilt Tahoe (www.artquilttahoe.com) last November in a class by Gerry Chase. We painted on fabric with acrylic paint, then tore it into squares and designed small pieces. The blue quilt is appropriately titled, "Blue Squares." The other quilt is "One Fish," inspired by the tiny goldfish in a bag that is appliqued on the center section.
