Artists of the COLOR FORMS Show

ColorFormsSPAC.Invite

That’s right! This Monday, October 5th is the first day of COLOR FORMS at the Seattle Pacific Art Center Gallery. A HUGE thank you to Jessica Vehorn of Gild Studio for curating the group of quilters. I was only familiar with 8 of the 20 artists included in the show before being asked to participate. That’s why I decided to look into the work of each person. Scroll on down to see an example of something made by each artist – it’s listed in alphabetical order by first name. All of the details about the show can be found on the Shows section of my website. Hope to see you at the Opening Reception on Thursday, October 8th from 5:00 – 7:00 PM!

    • You’re very welcome! I really enjoyed looking through everyone’s work. It was a great chance to be exposed to the work of a bunch of artists I wasn’t previously familiar with. Really looking forward to seeing “Trilogy” in real life! Anna B.

  1. Such a great post, with the photos and links to each artist in the show. Many of them were folks that I follow, but you introduced me to several artists whose work was new for me. Thanks for the introduction!
