The first 4Cats Art Cafe event at my studio in Seattle.
Sunday, February 15
Contact me for location information

Coffee, tea, orange juice and pastries are provided.
Additions to the menu are welcome.

Space at my studio is limited, so let me know asap if you would like a spot.

This is the first of many Cafes, so please tell your friends! 
The Quilts of Gee's Bend

The once obscure quilts of Gee's Bend and the women who make them have made a deep impression on countless artists, the art world, and the vast audience of people who are now familiar with their work. What makes these quilts worthy of attention as works of art? What relationship can we find between their work and the work of other artists

Consider bringing:
Books, postcards, reproductions of the quilts, work of other artists to compare them with, or any related images - conventional quilts, photographs, graphics, or other inspirations - that you think just might add to our discussion. 

Leaps of imagination are encouraged.
