I was recently contacted by Kelly Burns at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Baker City, Oregon and asked to participate in an art quilt exhibit titled "Nature of the West: Contemporary Quilts." According to Burns, "The exhibit will feature non-traditional quilts that depict the natural beauty of the West--glimpses of what might have been seen along the Oregon Trail--from awe-inspiring landscapes to the majesty of wildflowers. Oregon Trail pioneers often commented on the new and wonderful sights they encountered along the trail. This show continues the pioneer tradition of finding inspiration in natural surroundings. It will run July 1 through September 3, 2007 in our Flagstaff Gallery".
My art quilt, "Bark", is multi-layered reverse applique that also features hand embroidery and beading. It's one of my favorites, and I'm thrilled that it will be included in the exhibit.
