Quilt National 2013 – Opening reception

Adams-QuiltNational2013-opening-install3-Quilt National Director Kathleen Dawson announces the prize winners.

The Quilt National exhibition is held every two years at the Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio, home of Ohio University. Athens isn’t the easiest place to get to, but the show is phenomenal, and the Quilt National director and staff make all the artists feel very special. It’s worth every minute to see it in person. This year, a flat tire on the rental car notwithstanding, I had a great time there. Seeing old friends and meeting new ones is the best part of it. I enjoy taking pictures of as many artists as I can get to hold still in all the excitement. Some I could only get with my cell phone while they were doing their artist’s talk. The ice cream bar looking thing is a voice recorder.

So many people come to the exhibition, it can get a little overwhelming. But once the crowds clear out, you can finally have some time for really looking at all the fantastic work. I won’t post any pictures of the work, because you can order the book from the Dairy Center and see the professional shots which will do them better justice. But here are a few photos that will give you an idea of the overall exhibition.

Tracings III

Quilt National 2013 opened last Friday, so now it is safe to do the big reveal. As anyone who’s ever entered this show knows, QN has a very strict rule against any piece being published anywhere in print or on the web prior to the show opening. They do say you can show it on your own site, but in these days of Pinterest and other such things, why risk it? They’re quite thorough in searching things out, so most of us keep our work completely under wraps until such time as it is safe to show it.

My artist’s statement about this work:

Inspired by the structural elements and seductive surfaces of old buildings and walls, I explore ideas of time and transformation. An old wall tells a story, like a canvas upon which both nature and human beings play and leave their marks. Over the course of many years, layers of paint and graffiti are applied, only to be eroded by sun, rain, and wind. The result is a surface rich with texture and color.

Detail shots follow.
