There is some information that part of Quilt National will travel to the Oceanside Museum of Art in August or so, but I don’t have confirmation of that yet.

There is a catalog available for Quilt National in a variety of places.

The book Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits has a related exhibit. As one of the featured artists, I chose two of the pieces in the book to be in the exhibit, which opened at IQF in Houston, Texas, in late October 2013, and will be traveling through 2017, apparently…

Both Fully Medicated

And I Was Not Wearing a Life Jacket will travel with that exhibit…

Hopefully not ruffling too many feathers. Currently the traveling exhibit took these quilts to the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange, Texas, January-March 2014; and they will then go to the Festival of Quilts, Birmingham, England, August 7-10, 2014.

I’m not allowed to show full photos of the next two until the exhibits open…

I recently finished two pieces for Earth Stories, which will open at Michigan State University Museum, Lansing, MI, in May 2014, and will be exhibited there through November. It then travels to the University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg, MO, in 2015.

    Love your work. Thanks to controversy, I found you. Perhaps the negativity will bring more focus to your thoughtful, well-executed works of art. Not your Grandma’s quilting….but I am a Grandma and a quilter and I for one love what you are doing. Thanks

    This is good stuff. Just because we work in fabric doesn’t mean we shouldn’t attack ‘adult’ subject matter. There are quilt shows and then there are quilt shows. And btw, I’m 54 years old and sick and tired of the notion that female genitals are somehow shocking or disgusting. Men? Their ‘bits’ are on display in every art gallery on earth, turned into architecture, enshrined as a major form. Just because ours don’t dangle out the front doesn’t mean they’re gross.

    I’m sitting in the UK following the controversy surrounding your quilt. I find it amazing that there are still people in the world finding the female/male body “disgusting”. I wish more quilt/textile artists were making political art like yours. Well done to you and those who are prepared to face the critics by presenting such work.

    So glad to see work that means something.

    Your work is incredible, and not only visually rich in content, texture and subject, but richly thought provoking! Long may you continue.

  6. You have paved the way for so many; please continue…
