The Appalachian Center for Craft 2014 Workshop Instructor Exhibition is open! Stop by the beautiful campus near Smithville, Tennessee and have a bite in the cafe, take a hike, and see all of the amazing artwork. The exhibition runs through July 13, 2014.
For this exhibition, I created a new triptych: Botanique I, II and III. Each piece is mounted to a 12″x12″x1/2″ stretched canvas. I created these pieces this spring as an Idaho winter was slowly ending. I love the bright greens of spring!
Detail view. Stitching with variegated thread.
Botanique II. Created with quilts consisting of two layers of artist hand dyed batting, machine stitched between layers of black Kona cotton fabric.
Botanique I, II and III as a triptych. They can be displayed either vertically or horizontally.
Botanique I. Here you can see the edge detail of the painted canvas and the depth of the quilt pieces extending from the surface of the back quilt.
There are still spots in many workshops. For more information about the Appalachian Center for Craft workshops this summer: http://www.tntech.edu/craftcenter/workshops/
