ARTAA exhibits at VIEW

"Still Life with Pomegranates" - Sherrie Turkheimer
Several ARTAA members have been excited to participate this fall in the "Quilts Unlimited" juried exhibit at VIEW, Old Forge, New York.  This beautiful collection of 69 traditional and art quilts from around the region is displayed in the airy gallery of the VIEW Arts building, tucked in the gorgeous Adirondack mountains.  A destination treat running from October 11 - December 7, 2014..

"C-Thru" - Joanna Monroe

In addition, ARTAA was honored to give a presentation of it's past themed works from 2005 to the present during the opening day luncheon October 11th.  Attendees from all over were treated to a hands-on examination of the over 75 quilts as members discussed their origins and walked them around the room.

"In Anticipation" - Lucille Makrin
On the second floor of the arts building, ARTAA also exhibits it's own show, "On and Off the Wall" with another 37 art quilts on display in classrooms and hallways.  The variety of works and the excellent placement makes it an eye-candy experience.  That show continues through January 4, 2015.

"So Blue" - felted wool - Linda VanAlstyne
As you can see, we've been quite busy much of this year organizing our exhibit, refining our presentation, and finding time to create something spectacular for juried work in the main gallery.

We'd like to thank the staff of VIEW for their hospitality and artful skills.  We hope you have a chance to visit.
