On our way!
Both of my entries were accepted to Tactile Architecture debuting in Houston, TX at the International Quilt Festival! and they are, drum roll please.......Central Park and our group project Artists' Village!!
Little Fish in a Big City. It is in Quilt National '09 which is still touring. One of the venues for the collection that my quilt was traveling in was for Houston this year. Something happened. I don't know what, but it is no longer slated to come to Houston. I am so disappointed, I really wanted this quilt to be seen in Houston. So, it is especially wonderful, that the sequel, Central Park, is going to Houston! And, even better, the theme of this quilt...the dense population of downtown areas and the need for green space is replicated at the George Brown Convention Center, located in downtown Houston around a lovely, lovely park! Perfect!
The second reason is that since inviting 16 artists to make our artists' village I have been on pins and needles worried about finding a venue for it. Tactile Architecture seemed the perfect venue and was my first choice. But our village was an unusual entry, because it is large, 3D and is a collaborative project. But I like LARGE, and I love 3D (it is art that looks different as you move around and view it from different angles), and I crave and am hugely rewarded by collaborative projects. This is just PERFECT!
