Patterns: Quilts and Gardens

My curatorial career is coming to it’s apex this week while both shows I have recently curated are on view (“Lord and Schryver” at the Hallie Ford Museum…closing September 18th… and “Bits and Pieces” at Salem Art Association’s AN Bush Gallery, up until mid October).  Roger suggested this morning that there are certain similarities between the things that interest my eye so here goes…just some images…but if you’re out and about this week, go take a look:

(LeeAnn’s thank you quilt)

(my first quilt)

(…an antique quilt from a Seattle show)

(Mine for Christine)

LeeAnn’s spider web quilt)

(Marie Watt and volunteers at Ford Hall)


  1. Love these juxtapositions. Noticed, with great pleasure, the similarities on Friday as we rushed from your quilt show at the Barn back to the Hallie Ford. It was as if the imprint of the quilts overlay the patterns of the landscape plans, like looking through transparencies.

  2. okay so herbert read said “art is pattern informed by sensibility” which goes nicely to the quilts and the landscape plans–read that quote today in newspaper, works pretty good! hmmm what would that look like on a wood panel?
