2008 Breaking Traditions to travel!

It is truly my pleasure to curate an art quilt exhibit each fall called Breaking Traditions. This year we are pulling out all the stops and going BIG!!!

Work is already starting to come in and here is Jeanelle McCall's entry, A Mother's Voice:

Jeanelle says about her piece:

" 'One Voice' who enriches our lives is the voice of a mother. Her influence is fundamental in shaping all that touches us and all that we do. Passion, strength and wisdom are her beauty.

This piece has several layers of various fabrics and stitching honoring the many depths of motherhood that may go unnoticed unless one pays close attention.

This little quilt is a portrait of my mother, Sarah Belle."

This year's exhibit pay homage to all those people and organizations that have a positive influence in our lives. In keeping with the theme, this year's exhibit is teaming up with Virginia Spiegel's Fiberart for a Cause project.

In lieu of an entry fee, each participant is asked to donate $10 to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart for a Cause. Its a small amount that will make a tremendously huge difference in the life of a cancer patient and their family.

There are also many wonderful prizes to be won! Go here to check out what is available!

I am also putting together a print catalog that will be available, more details to come on that.

But the most exciting new development is that the 2008 Breaking Traditions Art Quilt Exhibit will be traveling during 2009!

The schedule is still being set but you can view the tour schedule here. If you would be interested in hosting the exhibit, email Lynn at FibraArtysta@earthlink.net for details.

This is going to be an extremely beautiful and exciting exhibit!!! I do hope you will join us this year!!!
