On Exhibit - Playing with a Full Deck

Playing with a Full Deck, will be on exhibit at Quilt San Diego/Quilt Visions, in San Diego, CA, from October 17, 2008 - January 4, 2009. This show was organized by Sue Pierce, and was first exhibited in 1995 by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling  Exhibition Services (SITES).

The show consists of 54 quilts, from a deck of cards, including two jokers.

I created the Two of Clubs in 1994. This piece was created by hand stamping hand cut 1" rubber erasers with fabric paint on one piece of fabric. Because there was no piecing or applique, making it required full concentration, and it took a few tries before I made a perfectly stamped piece of fabric. While I'm still working with grids, my work has totally changed in the past 10-15 years.

Also in on exhibit at Quilt San Diego/Quilt Visions, is a survey of the work from a selection of artists who made quilted playing cards. My "Orange Construction Fence Series #41," created in 2006, will be on exhibit there also.

And, four (of the seven) "Recycled Fence Series #33 will be for sale in their shop.
