I know it is a bit late for my monthly post--I guess the heat has been slowing me down. Oh New England in the summer--it is not supposed to be this hot and humid with no rain.
Frequently people will comment that I must spend the long winters in Massachusetts making quilts. While that is true, it is also true that the hot dog days of summer are perfect to work in my studio in air-conditioned comfort. This is a good thing because I do have plenty of quilts I need to be making. As you can tell from the attached picture, I have been inspired to continue my series of folding and rolling hills--the attached quilt is called "rainbow hills." What do you think?
I will be showing this quilt and many others at the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftspeople Show at the Chase Center in Wilmington, DE on July 31 and August 1. This is the first time I've done this show but I'm really looking forward to it. The Chase Center is along the scenic riverfront in Wilmington. Did I mention it's also air-conditioned? The show has over 170 great artists including my friends David Bacharach and Kathy Cooper. If you go to their web site you can pre-purchase tickets and save $2 as well as be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate. Do check it out--especially if you are in the Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania area or just passing through. http://PAcrafts.org
I am also having a one woman show at the Landmark Corporate Campus in Tarrytown, NY running through October 1. This show "Ann Brauer: Contemporary Landscape Quilts" features eight of my wall hangings displayed on the walls of the campus. All viewings are by appointment. Inquiries should be addressed to Wendy Kelley Art Advisory http://www.artworksadvisory.com 203.912.1044.
Meanwhile I continue to be working in my studio most days in beautiful Shelburne Falls where the Bridge of Flowers is lovelier than ever this year. If you are in the area do stop by and see me--I am there most days though if you are driving from a distance you might want to contact me. There is lots to see in the town. And of course you can read my blog or join me on Facebook and Twitter for further information.
