California Quilt Artists

It has been an interesting week!

There is a great little museum locally called the Muzeo in Anaheim, California. I have just started to Docent there. The current exhibit is: American Quilts in the Modern Age 1870 to 1940. Not only does the museum display many beautiful examples of old quilts, there are also about 10 truly modern California quilt artists sharing the stage. I was very excited to be able to meet almost all the artists at the Opening Gala.

Terry Waldron (Anaheim), Sherry Kleinman (Pacific Palisades), Sheila Frampton-Cooper (Los Angeles but visiting from Paris), local artist Jamie Fingal (Orange), Linda Anderson (LaMesa), Lura Schwarz Smith and her husband Kerby Smith,  (both from Coarsegold)
Here is a photo of Shelia Frampton-Cooper and myself in front of her (right) "The Ray, the Roses, and the Portal" piece.

Make a Wish on the Purple House and The Happy Dancer

This is the Smith family in front of Kerby's 
"Endangered Species: Girl Reading"
note the girl reading is their daughter.
If you are in town and are interested in seeing the installation, let me know, I have a few tickets to share. If not you can Google Muzio and there are discount tickets available. I will be the Docent the day after Thanksgiving and January 12th.  Come and see me! Thanks for dropping by.

I love the purple house quilt you photographed!

I also missed you last month for the Quilter's Garden.
