For over a year now, I have been working one-on-one with Maryte Collard from Lithuania as part of the Studio Art Quilts Associates Mentorship Program.* One of Maryte’s core goals was to create a body of work with a distinctive voice. She has worked diligently on this goal and you can see some of the results in Atspindžiai (Reflections), her solo exhibition from 31 October – 18 November 2016 at Siauliai public library:
If, like me, you’re not able to visit Lithuania right now, Maryte shares some installation photos on her blog. While I have studied Maryte’s work closely, it is wonderful to see these photos to appreciate the scale of the works and to see her development as an artist. Congratulations Maryte!
