Sacred Threads Opens Soon

Art is the means we have of undoing the damage of haste. It’s what everything else isn’t.

"Serenity" arrived in Virginia this week for the Sacred Threads 2015 exhibition at Floris United Methodist Church, 13600 Frying Pan Park Road, Herndon, VA 20171  

Exhibit Dates: 
Friday, July 10 - Sunday, July 26 
Monday - Saturday 11:00 am - 5:00 pm 
Sunday 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Each artist was asked to record a brief statement for the audio tour that will be available to exhibition visitors.  This option was well received at the previous 2013 exhibit.  The audio is meant to augment the written documentation about the quilts, and enrich the viewers' experience.   

Not going to Virginia?  Let me share my statements with you- 

Wall:  "On daily walks, the warmth of the sun overhead and the feel of the earth below bring me back to my senses.  From that place I am open to inspiration and grateful for nature’s gift." 

Audio: "The sun has been a special symbol that I connect with in my creative and spiritual life.  For me it represents clarity and energy.  I find myself returning over again to this imagery with my artwork.  In the quilt you see before you titled Serenity, the sun brings life giving nourishment to the earth, reaching deep beneath the surface promoting wholeness.  Light and land become balanced." 

To learn more about "Serenity", you can read this post Would you like to see my other sun imagery?  View additional works here.  As always, I would love to hear your comments.

And for those who will attend Sacred Threads, may you enjoy the exhibit!

Linking to Off the Wall Fridays where you can always see fabulous work.


  1. It is with great happiness and a sense of joy that I send you congratulations on your work, "Serenity," being in the "Sacred Threads" exhibit.. Your work is singularly beautiful and carries with it a deep connection with overall existence. It is brilliant that there will be an audio attendant with each work of art. Thank you for sharing with your followers that which will be recorded.

    1. Thank you very much, Linda!

  2. It is a beautiful piece, Linda. I am sorry that I can't see it in person. Thank you for sharing your audio message online......great idea! Your work brings 'sunshine' into all of our lives.

  3. Very nice work, Linda! I'm going to have to try your wool felt washing technique. I usually use craft felt and I'm afraid it wouldn't hold up to washing.


I welcome your comments!
