The following are a sampling of SDA WA members pieces in the show (and comes from the CQA Website):

04/25/16 Our apologies – we somehow left out SDA-WA member Katherine Sylvan!  Her wonderful art is also included in this lovely show!!

SylvanK_AndDances_309x520“…And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” by Katherine Sylvan

Artist Statement: My mother’s name was Margaret and her favorite flower was the daffodil. This piece is a memorial to her and a tribute to a time, long gone, when children learned verse which brought comfort and joy into their later years.

Materials & Techniques:
Materials: silk; Lanaset, Procion and Vat discharge dyes; textile paint; thread; Misty Fuse. Techniques: dyeing, silk screening, multiple layers of color discharge and over dyeing; stenciling; applique; hand painting; interlacement of two pieces of silk
Dimensions: 38″W x 64″H
Photographer: Robert Block

VincentR_OnMove_480

“On the Move” By Ruth Vincent

Artist Statement: Continuing my cosmological landscape series, this triptych is inspired by the movement of people across the land–from traditional aboriginal migration to modern-day touring from Sydney to Adelaide.

Materials & Techniques:
 Materials: Hand-dyed cotton fabric, cotton thread, polyester batting, fusible interfacing, commercial printed cotton backing. Techniques: Procion dyeing, textile paint stamping, discharge paste dye removal, piecing, quilting.
Dimensions: 74″W x 30″H

StehrC_Dentciles2_480x400 “Denticles 2” By Carla Stehr

Artist Statement: Although shark skin looks smooth, it is covered with tiny tooth-like denticles that can only be seen with a microscope. This is inspired by an image of dogfish shark skin denticles that I photographed with a scanning electron microscope during my career as a Fisheries Biologist.

Materials & Techniques:
 Materials are cotton fabric, stiff interfacing, wool batting, fabric paint and Liquitex ink. Faced openings were made in the quilt sandwich and then it was quilted with polyester thread. Layers of diluted paint were added after stitching. Stiff double-sided fusible interfacing was used to form the denticles. A grey patterned batik fabric was sewn over the denticle shape (much like facing a collar). Ink and paint were applied to the denticles to enhance the batik fabric. Denticles were inserted through the quilt openings and stitched to a backing of painted fabric.
Dimensions: 35″W x 29″H x 1.5″
Photographer: Carla Stehr

 

OSteen_Trees1_322x480“Trees 1”By Barbara O’Steen

Artist Statement: Whether you see this art as two tree trunks, one hollow stump or something else, the image and words are meant to convey a message of the value we receive from trees standing in a forest; providing oxygen that replaces poisonous carbon dioxide for decades.

Materials & Techniques: 
Fabrics of wool, cotton pique, cotton/polyester, satin, and cotton batting. Appliqué by hand and machine embroidery and couching with yarn, weaving, knitting, crochet, stuffing, trapunto, quilting.
Dimensions: 25″W x 36″H x 2″D
Photographer: Barbara O’Steen

 

 

 

KurjanJ_RiverofLight_480x“River of Light” By Janet Kurjan

 I find inspiration in patterns from nature, such as light coming through the trees during a walk in the woods.

Materials & Techniques:
 Hand-dyed fabric, machine-pieced, machine quilted with a walking foot.
Dimensions: 52″W x 68″HPhotography: Ken Wagner

 

 

 

 

FallertC_WatchMaster_480“Watch Master” By Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry

 


Artist Statement: 
On any given evening during my growing-up years, you could find my father at his watch-repair bench in a corner of our home, working among draws filled with tens of thousands of sparkling, nearly microscopic watch parts, springs, screws, balance wheels, jewels, stems, faces, hands, and crystals. When he died at the age of 103, the twelve-drawer cabinet which sat next to his workbench, still contained all its tools and glowing little parts, organized in rows of tiny tins, capsules, and clear plastic boxes.

Materials & Techniques: 
Original photography, digital printing, watch movements, watch faces, cotton fabric, wool batting, polyester thread. This is a completely double sided piece.
Dimensions :53″W x 53″H
