I know. I’ve taken a long time to post this. I like putting links to artists, so that takes time, but the closing exhibition is next Saturday (February 9) and the exhibit itself closes February 17, so I’d better do it soon or it makes no sense at all.

I loved the Oceanside Museum of Art space for showing Quilt Visions…it’s huge and has high ceilings and big open spaces (although it seems pretty crowded on opening night no matter what). I was concerned the Visions Art Museum space would be too small, too crowded. I think they helped a bit by reducing the size of pieces, but then again, you miss out on the giant VALYA felted face, the Velda Newman flowers, or Wendeanne Ke’aka Stitt’s Day of the Dead piece when you limit the size. So that’s a loss…that said, the show had interesting work, as always…

About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.
