Diane Cadrain: Art Quilts Lowell 2012

Diane Cadrain states she is honored her quilt, Thus Spake Zarathustra, has been accepted to the juried show, Art Quilts Lowell 2012, a competition with a music theme.

Her piece imagines the void of space as a place of majesty and mystery, as did the director of the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, in choosing Thus Spake Zarathustra, by Richard Strauss, to achieve that effect. Please visit the show at the Brush Gallery August 9th - September 15th.

CFAC Takes A Trip to Find Inspiration!

Five members of the Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective gathered at the Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford, CT on Saturday. Our goal was to sketch, take photos and observe the beautiful plants, trees and garden designs. We have an upcoming exhibit titled, Connecticut Landscapes, and I'm sure you'll see some Arboretum plant life in the designs... exhibit information will be forthcoming.

The weather was perfect to be out in the gardens!

Diane and Carol V. are deep in discussion... working through a technique perhaps?!

We hope you will be inspired to create a nature inspired design as well!
