Sunday outing: quilt exhibit

DH and I spent a pleasant hour and a half this afternoon at the Anderson Arts Center in Kenosha.  The featured exhibits are "Quilts in Color" and "Aprons: Myth, Memory, and Fantasy," and "The Three (Dis)Graces."
Ann Fahl created a series of quilts featuring her cat Oreo. The quilts vary in size (about 42 x 42 up to 60 x 60).  This is "In the Black Eyed Susans."

Reflections Variation by Barbara Schneider

The aprons were interpretations of the theme. This is by my friend Jo Mortland. It depicts her grandmother's northwoods cabin -- her grandmother is on the porch.

 Barbara Laybourn's "The Three (Dis)Graces" depict Poverty (made out of dryer lint, sand, and nature forms); Neglect (made out of sweaters, yarn, and knitting needles); and Indiference (made out of pattern paper, vinyl, mosaic mirror tiles, and ribbons).
