Sacred Threads Exhibit

Hi all--I just received notification that "Jars Of Clay" was juried into Vikki Pignatelli"s Sacred Threads, an art quilt show with a spiritual theme. For the first time this show will be held in the DC metro area. It is held every other year and received more entries than ever before. This will be my second time to be included in this show.
"Jars Of Clay" is a digital image printed on cotton. I tiled the image and printed it on four separate printer sheets. The green jar in the background is hand painted with acrylic on cotton fabric. Maybe I shouldn't tell secrets but it is actually one of my clean-up cloths from other paint projects. It's hard for me to wash paint down the drain so I wipe it up with fabric. I love the spontaneous results I get. I used oil sticks on the orange borders and free motion quilted the entire piece.

I'm thrilled to be accepted; this piece is one of my personal favorites; thanks Vikki for the opportunity to show my work. Approx. 36"x36".

Oh my gosh, this is a beautiful piece! I love how the vase looks aged because of the fabric and the effect the vase creates by being done in pieces. I am continually amazed by how wonderful and original your work is! This piece deserves the attention it is getting.
