6:30PM: Social — 7:00PM: Meeting — Guest Fess: $8.00
Guest Speaker: Valerie C. White, Quilt Artist and Educator
I am first and foremost a storyteller. I have specific ideas and messages I want to express in my Art. I work with intent. My goal is to create Art that suggests new considerations for objects that are mundane and familiar. As a multi-media artist I have chosen to express myself using textiles, this multi-media approach include textile paint, dye, and markers as well as removing and adding color. The process of layering in cloth is what particularly attracts me in. I’m attempting to produce cloth that is mysterious; the idea of seeing almost invisible images created by color and stitch intrigues me.
I began as a traditional quilter but soon felt this approach limited me from creating more expressive works. I have submerged myself in Art quilts. I am drawn to and inspired by African symbols and masks and have developed a stylized approach to include them in my work.
