The exhibit Interpretations: Conversations opened this weekend in San Diego at Visions Museum, on view through January 7, 2018. My quilt, Outspoken, was selected for this juried show and is part of a series of work I created that draws from my experience teaching middle school art.
"Words out loud, speaking the change from child to adult, noisy with energy and emotion, unconstrained by the buttons of a middle-school uniform".
Here are some books I have read lately: The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, by Arundhati Roy; How to Behave in a Crowd, by Camille Bordas; Do Not Become Alarmed, by Maile Meloy; Crossing to Safety, by Wallace Stegner; The Plover, by Brian Doyle. I often listen to audio books when I am sewing, and always have a paper book going at the same time.
