Extreme Quilters


Extreme Quilters  "Art from Cloth" 2013
Extreme Quilters  "Art from Cloth" 2013
Sunday was the opening reception for Extreme Quilters 4th Annual “Art from Cloth" exhibit at the Thousand Oaks Community Gallery.  Show runs through October 21, 2013.  Exhibit hours: daily from 10 am to 5 pm.  The Thousand Oaks Community Gallery is located at 2331 Borchard Road, Newbury Park, CA.

Extreme Quilters is a group of 25 contemporary textile artists from the Conejo Valley, CA, and beyond who produce a wide range of provocative art pieces.  The reception was a full and lively event on a very warm fall day.  There are always so many wonderful things to see, and this year was no exception.  Participating artists include:
Eileen Alber Betty Amador Loris Bogue Pam Christner Paula Chung Joan De Young Jerry Ferguson Linda W. Fisher Glorianne Garza Lynn Jurss Pamela Price Klebaum Jayne Larson Rodi Shemeta Ludlum Christina Rocha Jane Salvati Diana Shore Gayle Simpson Florence Stroup Sandra Whitehouse Lynne Willcox 


I found myself going back again and again to look at Paula Chung's xray imagery, and Loris Bogue's cityscape.  Color, texture, details!  There is also the gift shop with smaller items for sale by the artists... I am the happy owner of one of Pamela Price Klebaum's glass necklaces!
