Local stitcher's work in San Diego
October 30, 2012 - Mohawk Currents
Micropolis artist and Bleecker resident Judith Plotner tells us she is one of 40 artists from around the globe represented at Visions Art Museum in San Diego, Calif., through February 17th. The show, "Quilt Visions 2012: Brainstorms," is the latest edition of an international biennial competition that has drawn crowds since 1987.
Three jurors were challenged to select an exhibition that represents outstanding design and technique from 394 entries. They have selected 40 outstanding works of art from 17 states and five foreign countries created in the last two years. The jurors were Kate Lenkowsky, author of the award-winning book "Contemporary Quilt Art: An Introduction and Guide"; Jane Przybysz, former executive director of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, currently executive director of the McKissick Museum of the University of South Carolina-Columbia; and Kent Williams, an award-winning contemporary quilter whose work has appeared in numerous juried exhibitions, including previous "Quilt Visions" shows.
This year, the 12th "Quilt Visions" exhibition will be presented for the first time at the "Visions Art Museum: Contemporary Quilts + Textiles" at Liberty Station in San Diego. Visions Art Museum will welcome thousands of visitors from around the world and throughout the U.S.
On October 21, moderator Judith Content led a panel discussion with panelists Linda Colsh, Mary Pal, Terri Shinn, and Charlotte Ziebarth titled "The Artistic Journey."
A 100-page color catalog of Brainstorms is available.
