My piece “Our Journey” made it’s debut at the U.N. Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on March 22, 2016.
This exhibit highlights the importance of water as a precious source of life and its impact on the lives of women and girls around the world.
Here are some interesting facts about water collection according to water.org: http://water.org/water-crisis/women-children-facts/
Women and children spend 125 million hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls often spend up to 6 hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls living without a toilet spend 266 million hours each day finding a place to go.
Women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection.
In Africa and Asia, women and children walk an average of 3.7 miles a day just to collect water.
My piece “Mommy and Me” arrived safely in Taiwan. It will be a part of the exhibit “Protect the Earth’s Environment” held at the National Tainan Living Art Center, Tainan City, Taiwan, from April 30 – May 29, 2016. I will post photos from the exhibit after the opening.
Two of my pieces, “Her Story” and “Reflecting on the Past,” are being exhibited in Herndon, Virginia with the 2015 Sacred Threads exhibit.
This exhibit focuses on the connection between quilts and their makers and the emotional experiences that may be a source of inspiration to others.
I just found out that my quilt ‘Nesting’, which is being exhibited as part of Studio Art Quilt Associates 25th Anniversary trunk show, has been selected to become a permanent part of the collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. This is a huge honor and I am thrilled to have been selected to be a part of this prestigious exhibit.
