I have already received more than a dozen entries for Living Colour and look forward to receiving many more by the 31 January 2014. I am looking for original textile works in a diverse range of styles and materials that address the title theme. Don’t forget there are two words to the theme – living + colour. Beyond rainbows, wHen I look around, I see a world pulsing with life and colour so there’s plenty of scope! For more information, please see the Living Colour website:
Australia Quilts at the European Patchwork Meeting
In September 2014, Carrefour Européen du Patchwork/European Patchwork Meeting celebrates its 20th anniversary in Alsace, France. Australia is guest country of honour from outside Europe and I am curating a special invitational exhibit of 30-45 “exceptional quilts from the great Southern land” ranging from traditional quilts to contemporary textile art. The logistics are a little daunting but I look forward to accompanying the exhibit and showcasing the best of Australian quilt making.
In addition, I am teaching two one-day classes at Carrefour Européen du Patchwork AND Twelve by Twelve Colourplay will also be on display AND I will meet up with Belgian Twelve Françoise. Did I mention I am excited?!
