Quilt and Oil Show!

I am involved in a 2 person show that is both ART QUILT and oil painting.  If you are in the Canton area please stop in! 

Domestic Observances: Experiencing the Everyday Sacred. 
with Liz DeBellis & Brittany Steigert 

Working in a variety of media ranging from fibers to oils to ceramics, 
these talented artists will reflect on notions of femininity and domesticity, capturing the magic 
and wonder in the mundane that a woman's intuition can help accentuate.
