Eye Contact

In 2019 I sent a piece to be a part of  "Eye Contact: creating a connection" curated by Barbara Hollinger, as a special exhibit at the Sacred Threads Quilts exhibit. Barbara wrote, 

"In a time where politics, race, and religion divide us, a personal connection to those around us is hard to establish. We walk through the world with our heads down focused on daily tasks and distractions. . . . Lift up your head, gaze into someone's eyes, and make a connection." 

The exhibit consisted of 249 pieces measuring 5" x 23" and traveled to ten more venues between 2019 and 2022 before being returned to their makers. Barbara also prepared and sent a lovely bookmark showing a variety of pieces along with her statement describing the exhibit.

The quilts were suspended from wires at some venues

I was glad my donated Caladium Leaves sold in the SAQA 2022 online auction.
