As part of the States’ Centennial Celebration GVAL would like to create a one of a kind wood art quilt to be displayed at the Gilbert Family Music and Art Festival that will take place on February 17 and 18. Check out the previous article for details and the prospectus for entry into the “One Hundred Years Together: Gilbert Past, Present and Future” art show that is part of the Festival.
In addition to individual entries, as a group, we want to create a “quilt” of members artwork. We were given flooring samples to use, so we are cutting the boards into 7″ squares and distributing them to members. We want you to paint on them, collage on them, decoupage a photo on them, sculpt into or onto them, whatever creative idea comes to you.
For more information, download the instructions form. It also has a photo of our inspiration, a gourd quilt displayed at Arizona Art Alliance. We are hopeful that you can find a way to create in your style and medium on the wood piece. We are passing the wood blocks out at the January 5 meeting and want to collect finished pieces by the February 2 meeting. If you won’t be at the January meeting, you can get a wood piece from Diane Fales (firstname.lastname@example.org).
