More Great Quotations and Good News!

(Above:  Quiet Because I Stuttered, The Wall of Ancestors.  12" x 12". Anonymous photo, collage, antique frame and glass.  Click on any image to enlarge.)

I'm excited!  Dates have been set for another solo show!  Anonymous Ancestors is going to the Gadsden Museum of Art in Alabama from January 4 - February 22, 2019.  In celebration, I turned this anonymous photograph into yet another piece for The Wall of Ancestors. I can't wait to transform the space, especially the large interior.  Each venue has provided its own challenges and ends up very different according to the room's layout.  This will be so much fun!

(Above:  Great Quotations XXVIII: Dance.  Quotation by Martha Graham.  Antique or pre-1945 image and letters clipped mostly from vintage magazines and ephemera on a page from Charles Richardson's English Language Dictionary, 1846.  Dictionary page was initially fused to fabric and includes free-motion machine stitching and watercolor.  Page measures 11" x 8 1/2".  Each piece is matted to 20" x 16".)

I've also just finished six more pieces in my "Great Quotations Series".  These are so much fun to create ... especially the research for just the right quotation.  From Martha Graham to Harry Truman to Carlos Santana and beyond, I'm reading some very profound and often funny statements.  Browse down for the other five, finished pieces.
