I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

An Evening at the Tyler Art Gallery in Oswego, N.Y.

This evening I went to the Tyler Art Gallery with Beth Brandkamp, one of the artists in the show. Nineteen contemporary quilt artists had been selected by Pat Pauly, the curator, to participate. Its a beautiful setting and the quilts all looked wonderful.
Jeanne Beck and Pat Faulkner's work.
Pat Pauly, the curator's beautiful quilt.
Nancy Murty's screech owl is a fabulous quilt.
One of Marcia DeCamp's Jet Trails.

And Beth Brandkamp's Yellowstone III. There is beautiful quilting on this one. One of a series of four from Mary Diamond.

In the gallery at the opposite end of the hall was an exhibit of traditional nature paintings from the permanent collection to contrast with the art quilts. In among the paintings was a special display of eco-tankers...a concept of tankers who would sail all around the globe growing fruits and vegetables. The "boats" were made by school children as a special project.

Back with the Art Quilts, a quilt by Caren Betlinski.
And Giant Cell X by Aafke Steenhuis incorporating medical gauze to help her cope with a giant cell tumor in her wrist.
Judith Plotner
And Jeanne Simpson.
Pat Pauly on the right gave a short talk describing some of the quilts and the purpose of the show.
