Sacred Threads Exhibit

Last Saturday, June 25, I attended the opening of the exhibit: Sacred Threads in Herndon, VA.  The show explores the themes of spirituality, brotherhood, peace, joy, inspiration, grief and healing.  It was a powerful experience to view the artwork and read the statements that accompany each one of them.  I have two pieces in the show.  One is called: Memory.  It is a visual commentary on the subject of memory and was inspired by my work with senior citizens.  The word ‘memory’ appears to be written and erased on a school blackboard.  It is a statement about the sharpness and blurriness of memory as well as the frustration of not being able to remember represented by the scribbling lines.  This piece was in the category: inspiration.

 

The other piece is called: Reverberation I.  It is a meditation piece.  A gate and the concentric circles invite you to both come in or go out.  It was exhibited in the category: spirituality.

 

The show was organized by Lisa Ellis and Christine Adams in the new DC area venue.  They did a fantastic job.  I was glad to meet them along with some of the artists and the artists’ reception was followed by a great dinner.

Here I am with Vikki Pignatelli, founder of the Sacred Threads Quilt Exhibition.
