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

(Above: My Blue Grass Roots I. 45 1/2" x 35". Image transfer on vintage quilt with buttons. Hand stitched. Click on image to enlarge.)

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!

You always seem a bit suprised when one of your pieces of art gets accepted for a show, while I am never suprised in the least.
This is a great quilt! So happy for you that it was selected.

Saw your Bluegrass Roots quilt at the Brush Gallery recently. This nostalgic beauty was my favourite in the show. The vintage buttons are perfect! Congratulations from a Canadian fan.
