I am beyond thrilled to discover that my entry, Painting the Town, is featured on the cover of the exhibition catalog for the SAQA exhibition, Upcycle! This exhibit will premier at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this week.
Painting the Town is made from a drop cloth used on my print table. Each time I dye or print a fabric for my art work, I use a cotton drop cloth. These utilitarian fabrics collect the dribbles, stains, and shadows of the colorful inks and dyes. Like a journal, I can “read” the drop cloth fabric and reminisce about the art I’ve made and events in my life during the painting process. My collection of drop cloths are now being recycled into art and carry these memories with them.
