Janet Swigler / Art Quilt Show
November 1 - November 16
“Quilted Impressions” is an exhibit of quilts created by Janet Swigler. Her process of cutting free-hand and working intuitively without the use of templates, honors the tradition of quilting and shows the versatility of the medium. The artist has worked in this style for five years while studying with Nancy Crow, a Renwick Alliance Master of the Medium. Janet’s work is inspired by observations of daily life, reflections on nature, and personal insights that are then presented abstractly. The use of color, improvisation, and imaginative re-structuring of a simple shape are important components.
The most recent series entitled “Nothing Stays the Same” is the result of “digging deep” into memories and experiences of her life. That inspiration includes the delightful array of colors in a new box of crayons at the beginning of a school year, torii gates frequently seen during four years in Japan as a child, and piers and pilings, both sturdy and derelict, scattered along coastal waters.
Reception: Friday, Nov. 1, 5-8pm
Artist’s talk: Saturday, Nov. 9, 2pm
A percentage of the proceeds from anything sold will go to the Congaree Riverkeeper.
