Dear QE Clients and Friends,
In case you missed my February email, I currently have a 3-month, in-person solo exhibition of my textile art on view at the Milton Art Bank (MAB) in central PA (special thanks to Jeffrey Burrell Photography for the overview shot above). The show’s title, “BLUE,” references my use of Japanese vintage indigo throughout all the formats I work in: quilting, collage, weaving, and sashiko embroidery. And, after all, doesn’t every artist have a blue period?
There are 40+ artworks gracing the MAB walls and my 100 cloth amulets (from my 2019 “100 day project”) are displayed in vitrines providing an intimate viewing experience. The exhibit is open Thursday-Saturday, from 12-6, through April 30th. Please note: All artwork is for sale. Most pieces in the exhibit are already listed on my QEJAPAN.com website, but please feel at liberty to contact me directly with inquiries.
If you can not come to see the show in person, there are now three options to see the exhibit highlights from the comfort of your own home:
- Visit the homepage of the newly revised MAB website to read a full description of the exhibit along with my bio, my essay on “Boro,” and several images of my work (at the bottom).
- If you are on Instagram, check out both @miltonartbank and @susanfaeder for postings.
- For the “I like movies” people, please enjoy this short video tour:
In conjunction with the exhibition, I will be giving a talk called, “Influences and Inspirations of Japan” on April 14 here in Lewisburg, PA. Sponsored by The Bucknell Lifelong Institute of Learning, the program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Click here to see the flyer with details (and my smiling face).
Please watch for QEJAPAN SPRING NEWS Part 2
coming to your inbox very soon…
Wherein (!) I will be officially announcing the publication of my beautiful new 100 Amulets book and providing the “keys” to pre-order.
Thank you for your business and support along the way.
With my very best wishes,
