Welcome to the Anderson Arts Center

Tonight I am going to share a few photos from my last solo show at the Anderson Arts Center. They will give you an idea of the scope and beauty of the building. It was built as a private home and never lived in by anyone but the family.

Upon entering the AAC you will go through the entrance and come directly into the main gallery. The main gallery featured many quilts I created from my hand dyed fabric.

You see the stairs in the second photo. Here you can see the art hung as you start to ascend the stairs.

As you ascended the stairs the art changed from black and white to color.

As you reached the landing at the top of the staircase it was all about color.

I hope it is obvious from these photos what a great venue this is to showcase art. I have been privileged to be part of several shows here in addition to my solo show. This is just a small portion of the Art Center. They host many shows there at the same time. There will be 5 solo shows making up Quilts: Another DImension. I hope you won't miss it.

I hope you enjoy solving my Amish Bricks quilt puzzle. I used the
"bricks" cut which seemed so appropriate for this puzzle.

what a wonderful building for a show. I looked them up on line to see the building and it is such a wonderful looking mansion - the inside is even better. The quilts all look so wonderful hanging on those walls - that staircase! wow.

The show looks great! I like the way they coordinated the colors of the quilts. It's a wonderful space.

For my previous show that I just blogged about I can take the credit for the way the quilts were hung with the colors blending and changing.
This time Candace (the curator) is doing the hanging. I am anxious to see how she works two such different series into a cohesive show. She is amazing and I know she'll do a much better job than I ever could.
