I made this small artquilt for this year's SAQA Benefit Auction. The Auction supports the exhibition program, and since I have two quilts currently traveling in SAQA Global exhibits I was extra-motivated to make an auction quilt this year. The auction takes place from September 13 - October 6, and you don't need to be a member to bid. I don't make many works in this size, so it's a nice opportunity to own a piece of my work and support a good organization. I'll post reminders when the time comes.
Solar Flare began with a solar dye print I made last July using a hosta leaf. I was deep into an experimental printmaking frenzy, and this was one of the more outre prints. I combined the print with some shimmering shot silks from Mysore, India, then heavily quilted it.
I was honored to learn that Solar Flare was selected for a special exhibition at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum, in Lincoln Nebraska, April through August. View selected works here at the SAQA site.
