Three Cohesive Pieces Exhibit at NEQM's Lowell Quilt Festival August 8, 9, 10th

Good morning,

The clock is ticking, but there is lots of time to go through your ever growing pile of quilts and select three.

What does cohesive mean when you are talking about art quilts, preparing for an exhibit? When you want to provide a gallery or museum a cohesive body of work?  You are not always asked for a cohesive body of work.  Some times you are asked what you do and to show a range of work.

This is not that...a range of work.  This is an opportunity to look at what you have been working on over the past five years and to pull from that body of work three pieces that are interrelated, interconnected, unified, shows a consistent style or set of techniques that have been used by you and that lets the view see that the work was done, clearly done by one hand, writer (the individual marks on the fabric that you render), the artist.

I know some of you are probably tearing your way through three new projects wanting to meet the deadline.  I thought about that at the onset of this exhibit.  But I realize this is an opportunity to use what we have and to put the work up on the wall, down on the floor, the dining room table, you get the idea, and to see what works.

There is still time to get it done.  You can always email us with questions.  The idea here is to show cohesive work, get as many members work up during the festival, work together on a project, and to move on to our next exhibit and symposium with the enthusiasm this project will instill in all of us.  Let your friends know about the

The deadline is midnight and there are days left...see your newsletter for more details.  We will be sending out another posting tonight!

Let's do this!
