Exhibiting at the Adirondack Museum

"North Woods", 21 long x 31 wide, Acrylics, dye, markers, cotton

The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, New York has asked to exhibit "North Woods" at their Fiber Festival on Saturday, September 12. They've also requested "Meadow".

"Meadow", (close up), 31.5 long x 41.5 wide, Framed, Acrylics, Setacolor, cotton, upholstery fabric. Check my website for a view of the entire piece .

It will be fun to be at the Museum for the Fiber Festival since I'll have work in three of the exhibits at the Mueseum that weekend, the Common Threads Exhibit which is being held for a second year through 2010, work in the exhibit for the Fiber Festival, and work in the ARTAA (Adirondack Regional Textile Artists Alliance) No Flat Cats Road Kill Exhibit (more on that another time!).

The Museum kicked off the annual Fiber Festival two years ago and had a good response. We're hoping that with all the traditional and art quilts being exhibited, attendance will soar and the festival will be expanded. Feedback from museum staff has indicated that the Common Threads exhibit has generated a lot of interest. That's a good thing for the museum, the traditional quilting community, and for those of us who are the "out of the box" art quilters, too.

I hope you get a chance to visit Blue Mountain Lake in September to see the traditional and art quilts at the Adirondack Museum. The Adirondack Museum is a gem and well worth the trip. It's a beautiful time of year in the Adirondacks, too.
