A few of cinema's iconic films are captured in my textile art quilt "Movie Memories."
My piece is one 42 art quilts traveling as part of the Stitching California exhibit that will be on dislay at several California galleries in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

I am thrilled that my film strip art quilt
is included in this exhibit

Textile Art Quilt 15" x42"

Movie Memories



Next to my passion for art, is my love of films, so I immediately knew I would create a film strip art quilt for this theme.

I selected just five favorite film stars to keep the finished piece within height restrictions.

Charlie Chaplain is my favorite actor and is perfect to start our film journey.

From silent black and white movies, to the first westerns with Bronco Billy, which were filmed just a few miles from where I live, in historic Niles California.

Next we see film noir, with Hollywood legend Bette Davis.

Romantic comedy was the rage in the 1960s, seen here, in my quilt, with beloved actress, Audrey Hepburn, in Breakfast At Tiffany's.

And lastly, wonderful song and dance musicals with child star Shirley Temple are timeless.

I handstitched the background in each frame to capture the translucent quality of a film strip, and also a feeling of nostalgia for the creative hand craftsmanship in early productions.

I am so pleased to share this brief film journey with you.

The exhibit includes 42 pieces of textile art including 3 dimensional fiber sculptures. You will see vibrant landscapes, colorful figures representing the diverse cultures, abstract interpretaions of the Bay and cityscapes, emotional illustrations of the recent fires, and much more. Fiber artists from Northern California and Nevada who are members of Studio Art Quilt Associates, (SAQA)
interpret California's people, life, and land reflecting on the past and present
exploring diversity, illusions, realities, and the richness and contradictions of the Golden State. Opening reception was Sat. Aug. 17, 2019 at Grace Hudson Museum, Ukiah, CA
