Quilts at the Public Library

We just got done hanging this year's Art Quilts Maine Challenge Quilts at the Portland Public Library children's section. They have such an awesome, open space with lots of light and great wall space above the books. This year's challenge was, "Ocean, Lake, River--inspired by a body of water." The show will be on display through February, so make time to stop by the library.

As always, the challenge theme brought out a diversity of responses, from abstract images of the ocean to a favorite photo of a boat at sunset. The tour continues until May, with stops at Waterville and Skowhegan, and a return to Portland for the May 1 First Friday Art Walk at the Cathedral Church of St Luke. Artwork is returned to the artists at the June meeting. Interested in hosting an exhibit? Contact me through the comments and I'll get in touch with you.

Here are a few photos from the current exhibit:
