Shelly Burge’s quilt, “Dinghy” is on the cover of the summer 2015 issue of Quilting Quarterly magazine.
Her quilt was inspired by a painting by Carolee Clark and was shown at the 2014 NQA Quilt Show, Columbus, Ohio.
This is a reminder about our upcoming quarterly meeting to be held at the Smiling Turtle Art Gallery in Omaha on Saturday, June 13th at 11:00 a.m. Shea Wilkinson and Rhonda Baldwin will be talking about basic photo editing.
They plan to cover basic photo editing needs, such as adjusting an images for the correct file size, or pixel size, brightness and contrast, cutting out the background for pure white, and more. They will also look at batch editing, which allows you to make the same adjustments to multiple images at once.
This should be an informative meeting on a topic that we have had many questions about.
Also, remember the deadline for the regional show, “Deeply Rooted” is fast approaching (entry opens June 16th, final deadline for submission is July 15th). Hope you are planning to enter something!
As always, you may bring your own beverage and lunch if you want. Also, and show and tell or kudos!
The opening reception for the traveling exhibition, “Architexture” will be held at the Norfolk Arts Center in Norfolk, NE on Thursday, July 2, 2015 from 6-9 pm.
The gallery will not only be showing “Architexture”. Also included will be works from the Fiberworks group, including the premier showing of their exhibit, “Material World”. A number of the members of Fiberworks are also members of SAQA NE.
Peg Pennell will give a short talk about SAQA, Fiberworks and the featured exhibitions during the evening.
Please plan to attend! Bring your friends and family, this is a wonderful venue and we want them to be impressed by the large crowd a fiber show brings in! We would like to be invited back to show here again.
Hope to see many of you and your friends and family there!
