Online Slide Show of Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party”

I am re-posting this from my July 26, 2010’s Woodhaven Studio blog, as there has been much discussion on the Quilt History List.  The exhibit was showing at the Brooklyn Museum at that time, but the online slide presentation is still available for viewing.

If you have never seen Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party”, it is at the Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, New York.  Their web site shows slides of the exhibit, which is incredible.

SAQA’s “Seasonal Palette” Artists’ Journals Online

September 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

The artists’ journals from “Seasonal Palette” with photos of the quilts  is now online at:  http://www.saqa.com/gallery-mini-detail.php?ID=2379

This is a juried exhibit from SAQA’s members.  Artists in this exhibition were asked to keep journals as they created their artwork.  These journals are placed on display with the exhibition at each venue.

I saw this fabulous exhibit at International Quilt Festival’s Cincinnati Show in April 2013. Reading the journals and seeing the sketches, photos, etcetera in the journals made the art even more enjoyable to view.
