WA SDA Member Barb Nepom takes her love or order, patterns and geometry which she used in a career in medical research, to a fantastic new level in her art quilts. Her pieces feature her own hand-dyed fabrics, discharged materials, and geometric stitching. She feels her pieces seem to portray “how nature builds beautifully functioning organisms from an array of lifeless fragments.”
Barb’s home and studio are on Lopez island, where she is presented with inspiration every day, just by looking out the window. Not only that, but a vibrant artist community abounds on the island. One of the many places that supports the arts is the Lopez library.
Should you be on Lopez this week, Barb invites you to stop in the Lopez Island library to see a display of her quilts through November 21. The library is located at 2225 Fisherman Bay Rd, Lopez Island, WA. Their hours are:
Mon, Sat 10-5
Tues, Thu, Fri 10-6
