SAQA People and Portraits Exhibit, Part 2
I enjoyed this exhibit and have long admired the quilt artists who belong to SAQA. This series of quilts by Lori Lupe Pelish were intriguing. She uses a variety of fabrics to make her detailed portraits. She dyes some of her wool and also reclaims wool from thrift stores for her hooked rugs. You can see more of her art on her website.
This series of four quilts is 43×130 inches. I was unable to photograph the series as a whole but you can see it on her website. We Were All There.
Another couple of portraits I studied were by Mary Pal. She manipulated cheese cloth for these quilts.
For more of Mary Pal’s artwork, visit her website.
Next post, I’ll bring you Part 3 of People and Portraits. For now I need to go to exercise class. I’m curious to see the number of steps my Fitbit Zip counts–I’ll let you know next time.
