Viewing Art Quilts: Playing with a Full Deck

Over the holidays, I viewed this show at San Diego's Visions Gallery. What a great exhibition theme! All quilts were a unified size, and all unique.

The project involved an artist being paired with a specific card from a deck of cards, and then interpreting that card in her/his own way in fabric. All 52 cards were represented! The neat thing is that the exhibit is owned by a couple who purchased it to ensure the pieces would remain together...just like a deck of cards! The 'King of Hearts' on the cover of the book about the exhibit (above) is one of my favorites in addition to the 4, 8 and 10 of Clubs and the 8 of Hearts! After San Diego, I don't know where the exhibit has gone, but it is worth seeing if you get the chance. Its just fun!
