My Blue Grass Roots I ... accepted into Art Quilt Lowell 2012!

While I did not make the art quilt above specifically for Art Quilt Lowell 2012, it happened to fit this year's theme: Music! The juror for this prestigious show was none other than Karey Bresenhan, President and CEO of Quilts, Inc. I just received a congratulatory email from the hosting venue, The Brush Gallery, saying it was accepted! The show features some of the very best art quilts made across Canada and the United States. It runs from August 11 through September 15 with its opening coinciding with the Lowell Art Festival. There's a special artists' reception on Saturday, August 11 from 2 - 4. I won't be there ... but I'd love photos of my piece in this setting! Happy, happy, happy!
