Quilters' Sew-Ciety of Redding, Inc. - City Hall
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the California State Parks in 2014, a "challenge" was issued to guild members to create a quilt depicting a California State Park. This unique exhibit consists of 56 quilts made by 56 quilters to celebrate and showcase the diversity and beauty of the 278 various state park units in the "Golden State." An additional quilt depicts a replica of the California State Park's 150th anniversary poster. After selecting a state park of their choice, the quilters used a variety of piecing and quilting styles, as well as creative embellishments to highlight the quilts. An interpretive narrative accompanying each quilt provides information about the park, the quilter's inspiration, and techniques that were used. In addition to the "challenge" exhibit, the group partnered with the California State Parks Anniversary Committee to encourage quilters to make quilts of the state parks as part of an on-line quilt show. We hope this exhibit inspires you to visit your state parks! (exhibit scheduled for removal on June 9, 2014 - to be replaced with a variety of quilts). For more information click the link below:
Patricia Cook - City Hall
Since childhood, Patricia Cook has been putting together bits and pieces to form artwork. It has only been in the last 5 years that she has put herself whole heartedly into assemblage artwork. Each piece almost creates itself, according to Cook. They portray the quirks and unpredictableness of life, and, in this exhibit, have themes as well (nest series for example).
Kirk Beedle - Redding Library
Kirk enjoys photography as a hobby and has been taking photographs for 30 years. The photos are taken in the moment without any props or staging. He hopes the viewer will sense the crispness in the air on a snow day, feel the island breezes, or hear the waves laping at the ferry as it plods along.
