Our venue is the incredibly cool 'Have Company' on Division Ave. ArtPrize runs Sep 24 - Oct 12.
We will be displaying our quilts on the walls, teaching workshops, hosting open quiltings bees, selling our work, and performing feats of textile performance art in the Have Company window.
September 27th, I am attempting a crochet endurance piece, crocheting one of my rag rugs in the Have Company window for 8 hours! (12pm-8pm). ---The longest I've gone without stopping by far... I'm really excited to see how big it will grow! I think at the top of my game I can do a foot an hour.
I am also teaching a free scrap yarn workshop September 26th, 12pm-5pm, in part to get people to help me prep for the 8 hour rug making session.
Quilting is relatively new to me. I finished my first quilt last year and it was one of my proudest artistic achievements. Since then I've made three more quilts. I haven't really figured out how/where to display them -- I am so terrified of getting them dirty I've just stored them in garbage bags in my closet...
I am so excited to have this opportunity to show them in the context they belong -- alongside the work of my peers!
