ARTAA's Lucille Makrin Opens an Exhibit

The Salem Courthouse Community Center is featuring the amazing quilts of Lucille Makrin in the Great Hall from March 6th until April 13, 2011.

Below is Lucille's "Hooked!", using the reverse applique technique.  As you can see, she enjoys thinking outside of the box.

Lucille resides in Cambridge, NY and has loved fabrics since childhood, dabbling in all aspects of fabric creations and mixed media.  She is an active member of 7 regional quilt guilds, including ARTAA.  Lucille is also instrumental in founding the Courthouse Quilters that meet on a regular basis at the Courthouse.

Her show is a collection of quilts created over thirty years, many of them receiving special honors that included: blue ribbons from the Washington County Fair, Hildene Needlework Show awards and special recognition in Quilter's Newsletter magazine.

The public is invited to an opening reception on Sunday, March 6 at 1PM
