Last Sunday being in Stuttgart I went to the opening of the contemporary quiltshow" color improvisations" which was curated by Nancy Crow. Out of 27 artists 24 came to the opening and were individually introduced by her by reading their resumes and statements to the audience. Among them were 4 German quilt artists : Heike Dressler, Uta Lenk, Randa Stewner, Pia Welsch . All of the 50 pieces that are in the
exhibition are worked in large sizes, many in several colors some only in 2 or 3. While most artists used large patches some still used thousands of tiny little snibblets.
Kathleen LoomisViele Arbeiten sind sehr aufwendig gequiltet und hervorragend ausgeführt. Die Ausstellung ist einfach eine Augenweide, die man gesehen haben muss. Das dazugehörige Buch mit großen Aufnahmen ist eine gelungene Representation. Leider war das Fotografieren nicht gestattet , die Fotos hier habe ich mit Erlaubnis von der Webseite kopiert. - Many pieces are heavily machine quilted and excellent workmanship. The entire show is just a treat for the eye and a must see. There is a catalog available with large pictures that are well done. Since photos were not allowed to take during the show I copied these pictures with permission from their website.
