Two of us featured at the Earlville Galleries

Both Patty Hawkins and Linda Beach are among the featured artists in the upcoming Contemporary Art Quilts exhibition at the Earlville Galleries in Earlville, New York. The exhibition will open on Saturday, July 11 with an opening reception from 12-3 pm.

An interesting quote from the exhibition press release:

"Two of this year’s quilters live in Estes Park, Colorado. Patty Hawkins creates quilts rife with aspen trees reimagined as stylized, almost tribal motifs. She describes the delight as she begins each project as “chocolate cake without the calories.” Linda Beach also uses trees as inspiration for her quilts, though they’re differently interpreted than Hawkins’. Beach’s art is like the Picasso to Hawkins’ Andy Warhol, featuring strikingly angular compositions enriched by the dazzling interplay of the patterned fabrics she uses."
