Small Things for Sale at Eat Your Art Out!

 Carmella Jarvi is the curator for the gallery at Packard Place in Charlotte NC and invited me to display art for sale this Saturday night.

In addition to a selection of my most recent art work, I created a half dozen small works based on the pine cone and needles that work as a group or individually. Four are 8 x 8 inches, and two are 4 x 4 inches. I will also have some of my small sketches that are the designs for my textile art.

I am trying for a range of price points - from $12 for small sketches to $2800 for the largest piece in the exhibition.

It was fun trying to capture the shape and form of both the needles and the pine cone.
 This piece shows the dense echo quilting and a branch of pine needles.  This specimen is from a pine tree that grows in our side garden next to the meadow and shades the blue bird box.

If you are in the Charlotte area Saturday night-- 5:30 - 8:30, I hope you will come out and support this fund raiser (tickets are $20 ahead of time, $25 at the door and children are free with a paying adult).  Tickets cover 2 beers, and 2 food samples and entry to seeing lots of art from over 20 different artists in a variety of mediums.



  1. Your small pieces are wonderful; I hope you have quite a few because I think they will be snapped up by people who would love a large piece but can handle the price of these more easily. Wish I could see the exhibit! Congratulations.

  2. Sorry I can't go and participate, Nancy. The pieces are lovely and I love the close ups on how you are quilting them.

  3. Wish I was there-lovely, lovely pieces.

  4. beautiful pieces! -- hope you sell them all!!

  5. Thanks, all. It was a very interesting and fun experience. I sold a small watercolor. Lots of folks, including many men, came to examine my work and exclaim once they realized that it was in the quilt format. Most had never seen any art that was fabric and designed to hang on the wall. So I did my piece for educating some of the Charlotte art audience about art quilts.

    I took a couple of small pieces of unfinished work so folks could see the process and touch to their hearts delight.

    Thanks again for all your support,


    PS if you have not checked out my website recently, I have added a number of new works. there is a link at the top of this page.
