No Holds Barred!

Grief c.2009  36" H x 22" W.
The opening reception for the SAQA NE Region "No Holds Barred" exhibit was on Saturday. There was a big turnout, with most of the artists attending. The New England Quilt Museum did a professional job of hanging the show. There are some amazing pieces of art in the show. The show will be at the museum until April 9, so if you can get to Lowell, it is well worth the effort.

I was proud to have two pieces juried into the show, but couldn't post a photo of them until after the opening. The one above is "Grief", which I have thought was one of the best pieces I've made, but it hadn't been accepted into a show before. I'm glad it was able to make it's debut in the show. You just never know what the jurors will see in different entries, or what other entries will be. The jurors brought a very cohesive show together.
Before/After  27" W x 22" H 

The one above is "Before/After". Both are made with my own hand dyed fabrics, which I love making!


  1. Beautiful work, Jeanne. I remember when you were creating Grief. So glad that both pieces were accepted into the show.

  2. Stunning pieces! Love your shibori and work.

  3. Your shibori is shiningly beautiful! So glad you told me about your blog.

  4. Just gorgeous! I only wish I could see them in person.

  5. Thanks to everyone who has commented. The show is up until April 9, when the snow may have melted away.

  6. Congratulations on "Grief"s inclusion in the show. I remember seeing it in the SAQA online crit group and being very touched. I think it is a wonderful piece.
