New Quilt for Exhibit

44 Equals Change

44 Equals Change (detail)
Here is one of the quilts I have been working on. I made it Andy Warhol style using Photoshop Elements. It is now at the college and the exhibit details are below. I saw Mr. Obama on TV giving a speech and took a snapshot with my Casio Z77. I turned it into a sketch and added details. Then, I printed it on fabric. Good thing the college is taking professional photos, mine did not turn out too good...the colors are off a bit. Guess I need more practice on taking quilt pics.

The exhibit “President Obama: A Celebration in Art Quilts” will be held at The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center at Montgomery College’s Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus
President Obama: A Celebration in Art Quilts
Location: Cafritz Art Center, 150 King St., Silver Spring, MD
Dates: February 9 - March 5, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, February 13th

This show, organized by Susan Walen, comes from an all-volunteer,
grass-roots, multi-ethnic group of fiber artists from all across the
United States and as far away as Australia. Our work is in tribute to our
new President, in gratitude for the hope and inspiration he
has brought us. We present these art quilts at an unforgettable
historic moment in our country's history.
