SAQA Celebrating Silver Artist Talk

Here's a video of me talking about my piece Moonshine in SAQA's Celebrating Silver exhibit at the 2014 Houston Quilt Festival. At the time, I had no idea I was being recorded or that it was posted on You Tube. Surprise! And, a delightful surprise it was. I wish my talk had not been accompanied by Monsieur Le Frog de la Throat, though I managed to croak it out pretty well in spite of it... ribbit!

Celebrating Silver is a beautiful collection of quilt art, all of which you can see or purchase on the SAQA website. The catalog, a gorgeous hard-cover book, is available as well. I must thank juror Yvonne Porcella who selected an amazingly talented group of artists. I am so honored to be among them. And another big thank you to Nancy Bavor, the managing curator, for that unexpected and very sweet introduction (that's her wearing the silvery hair - it was Halloween!) and all her hard work in bringing this wonderful exhibition to life.

    What an interesting speech. I would love to see this piece for real, perhaps if it gets to travel to the UK art some stage.

    Thanks, Maggi! As a matter of fact, the Celebrating Silver exhibit will be traveling to the Birmingham show in 2016, so you will be able to see it. Have a wonderful holiday!
