January Blah’s BLASTED!

I have some good news to post as well after about six months of disappointing declinations….

My ‘YOU’RE FRACKING KILLING ME’ will be in the FIBER PLUS show at the Blue Door Gallery, Yonkers, March 20 through May 17.  For anyone in the metropolitann New York area this is a MUST VISIT event in fiber juried and curated by SAQA’s own Arle Sklar-Weinstein.  Here is YOU’RE FRACKING KILLING ME, full view and detail view…

‘WHEN WE WERE ONE’ from my GENOME PROJECT series has been accepted into the ‘QSDS Happiness: QUILTED EXPRESSIONS’ exhibit at the very impressive RIFFE Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, from May 5 through July 10, 2011.  This competition was open only to participants of QSDS over the last 21 years (including 2011), and I’ll be taking a workshop in June with Fran Skiles.  More good news about this:  I applied and was awarded a scholarship for the tuition for the workshop!   This piece is RATHER large…58″ H x 50″ W and the top is made entirely of fabric and beads from Africa.  Most of my quilts send a message or tell a back story;  this work represents what we have learned from the recent (and ongoing) scientific genome project – that about 40,000 years ago all of humankind originated AS ONE RACE in the bush of the central/southeastern African continent.  Not so very long ago, relatively speaking (and much less than originally estimated by anthropologists and scientists).  So, that’s the back story.  I’m taking a rest from this series for a bit in quest of other story lines which are inspiring me, but I will return to it as it continues to intrigue and inseminate me with ideas to express in fiber and quilt.

    Congratulations, Deb! In addition to some gorgeous work, your title, “You’re Fracking Killing Me” is so intriguing … will you reveal how you came up with it?
