Sierra Nevada Reimagined

Lecture

As a California native, Ann has frequented many of the high trails of the Sierra Nevada. She has spent many more hours of her artistic life trying to imagine how to put her appreciation and understanding into cloth and stitches.  She calls the resulting body, so far 36 large-scale quilts she calls The Contact, includes both the geologic and historic influences on what we see on the surface. Her compositions are both realistic and abstract, looks both inside what we see through a microscope and beneath the surface of the land, imagining geologic events. Please join her to see the sources of her ideas, how they developed, and where next.
