Finally, some art! It's Good to Be Green is an invitational exhibit at the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, in Tillamook, Oregon, curated by artist Larkin Van Horn. This innovative show runs from March 4 - May 4, with opening night on March 9th. I'd love to be at the opening but it's not going to happen. My piece, Define Green, has a large image transfer created from a 2x3" 19th century tintype*. The quilt measures 18 x 45", so the image is about 18" high. I love this piece. It is for sale, but I'd really hate to see it go.
You can see wonderful detail shots and an excellent quality overall image on the show CD, which includes 47 pieces total, 28 art quilts, 19 pieces of other fiber art, 39 artists from 18 states and 1 province. It's only $15 (including shipping) with a portion going to Habitat for Humanity. This is one of the best quality and visually interesting CDs I have seen. The detail shots are better than seeing the quilts in person.
On a funny side note: Larkin asked me to be in this show way back in 2006. The deadline was in the Christmas/New Years range. Because I usually get a few months notice from anyone needing work from me, I assumed it was due December 2006. So when December rolled around, I emailed her to tell her it was almost done. Turns out she said December 2007. I was a year early! Good thing too, the way my 2007 turned out.
