On the Grid: Structure as Visual Aesthetic

When my friend, Chandra, asked if I'd like to road-trip it with her to see Maria Shell's @mariashellart exhibit at the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum in La Connor, WA, I was happy to say, "Yes, please!" The exhibit was titled, "On the Grid: Structure as Visual Aesthetic," and we were surprised and happy to see there were 43(!) of Maria's quilts on display. I didn't get photos of all of them, but thought you might enjoy seeing a selection of them. Read Maria's Artist Statement, if you'd like a little insight into her body of work. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed seeing a portion of the exhibit! Chandra and I really enjoyed seeing Maria's work up close and personal... the quilting, her use of prints, the wonderful mix of colors. It really was a delight to see.
