Dateline: October 9, 2010
Today marks the opening of the 24th annual Northeast Quilts Unlimited show at Old Forge, New York. ARTAA members are proud to be this year's invitational exhibitors and have offered a "Best of ARTAA" display for visitors, with many prior ribbon-winners in the mix. The show runs from October 9, 2010 through November 11, 2010 and would make a wonderful foliage trip.
ARTAA is also proud to celebrate the talents of two of its members: Nancy DiDonato and Diane Evans. Nancy is this year's "Best of Show" winner at Northeast Quilts Unlimited. Nancy's entry, "Square Dance in the Cabin" was created in 2009 for the Polly Briwa Challenge at the Wings Falls Quilt Festival, Glens Falls, NY. It was a winner at that time, as well, and represents a non-traditional approach to a traditional Log Cabin design.
Diane took 2nd place at the show with "Pieces of Dreams", a colorful quilt that has graced many of the AQS promotional materials of 2010 and has been a ribbon winner in other venues throughout the country.
ARTAAfacts Nancy DiDonato, Joanna Monroe, Kris Gregson Moss and Pat Spillane have several pieces currently displayed at the Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, NY for the 2nd Annual Great Adirondack Quilt Show. This exhibit is scattered throughout the museum and will be shown through October 17th.
ARTAAfacts Joanna Monroe has been notified that her SAQA Auction Quilt, "Cathedral in the Pines" was sold at the $350 level. A wonderful benefit for the organization and a lucky new art collector. You can see the quilt on Joanna's blog.
ARTAAfacts Joanna Monroe is exhibiting with LARAC Lapham Gallery, Glens Falls, NY at the "Black and White Fine Art Exhibit" now through October 30th.
Plenty of reason to take that FALL FOLIAGE trip to the Adirondacks.
