The vocabulary of quilts is an addition to the language of art, because of its extensive use of layer and texture. The artists exhibited in Speaking in Cloth: 6 Quilters, 6 Voices use cloth, batting and thread to tell their stories and record their explorations. The far-ranging experiments of these artists have resulted in an exhibit that demonstrates the possibilities of art quilts.

Back Cover Information

"This exciting compilation of works by six recognized quilt artists of the American Northwest deeply explores the magical alchemy between dye, cloth and transformation. Finding inspiration in myriad sources, each artist finds her own voice in manipulations of color, fiber and form that express unique perspectives on life, place and art." - Stacy C. Hollander, Senior Curator, American Folk Art Museum, New York

Art goes beyond the material and give space to emotions and ideas. Six quilters have succeeded in creating are, as this superb book proves." - Caroline Boot, Curator Art and Design, Textilemuseum, Tilburg, Netherlands

Speaking in Cloth: 6 Quilters, 6 Voices offers a clearwindow into the work and creative processes of six very different artists in the quilt medium. It's a real pleasure to see such a focused exhibition. Viewers have the opportunity to really get to know the individuals and hear their distinct voices. We need more exhibitions like this." - Robert Shaw, Curator and Author, Shelburne, Vermont

A fascinating insight into the inspirations, thought processes and challenges of six contemporary quiltmakers as articulated in these works."Anne Scott, Editor, New Zealand Quilter Magazine

" ... a body of work that will set the tone for the early 21st Century art quilt medium in our region. These are fully realized works of art that draw you near, beckoning you to look closely and then asking you to step back and think—and join the conversation." - M. J. Korciva, Director, Coos Art Museum, Oregon

Author Ann Johnston, Jeannette DeNicolis MeyerAbout the Authors

Cynthia Corbin - Cynthia sees her work as an eclectic personal expression in classical quilt form. Using a seat of the pants approach to quilt construction, she explores marking fabric with dye, paint and intensive machine quilting. Her work has been published and exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. She lectures and teaches nationally. As an artist, Cynthia has devoted herself to extensive study to deepen her understanding of the processes that drive her work. As a teacher, she encourages her students to search for uniqueness and authenticity in their own work. Cynthia lives and works in Woodinville, Washington

Quinn Zander Corum - To confuse things, Quinn's given name is Gwen. She grew up on a farm in Minnesota, raised chickens with the Peace Corps in India, earned a degree in cultural anthropology from Cal/Berkeley, and lived in Brazil where she learned to play tennis, one of her greatest pleasures. Quinn has worked with needle and thread since learning to hand embroider at age five, and has been exhibiting her art quilts since 1987. She makes her home with her husband Kenton and their two above-average sons in Portland, Oregon.

Nancy Erickson - At the beginning of World War ll Nancy's parents bought a fabulous cattle ranch (Mission Ranch) near Livingston, Montana, and set about changing their lives radically. As a child she spent hours wandering the mountains and foothills of the Absarokees. After the ranch, Nancy says she picked up an educated layer earning degrees in zoology, nutrition and finally an MA and MFA in painting. She has lived with her husband, Ron, in the same mountain canyon near Missoula, Montana for 35 years, enjoying the company of cougars, bears and deer.

Trisha Hassler - Since childhood, Trisha has stitched, cut and reassembled everything that would hold still. Along the way were baby quilts, clothing, dance costumes, scenery and even a sofa. She developed a fascination with construction techniques, improvisational quilting and alternative materials. The evolution of her artwork continued through experimentation and the discovery of metal. Trisha's artwork is exhibited in juried shows, galleries and museums across the country. As a full-time stylist in her husband's photography studio, she works with fabric daily. Many ideas grow from their photo projects, and by the end of the day she's ready to stitch again

Jeannette DeNicolis Meyer - Jeannette grew up in New York, where her parents kept her supplied with colored pencils and her uncle taught her to sew. Accompanying her eighth grade French class to Europe awakened a lifelong love of travel, a reverence for art museums and an awe of all middle school teachers. She and her husband headed west after graduating for Cornell and except for a brief move to New Zealand, raised their two sons in Oregon. Jeannette exhibits and conducts dye and design workshops internationally, teaches in the studio school of the Oregon College of Art and Craft, and hopes to make art until the light gives out.

Ann Johnston - First, Ann learned to sew, then she learned to dye fabric. In between, she earned a degree in Literature from Stanford University and a Masters in Geography at the University of Oregon. She taught new math in Lima, Peru, raised two sons in Oregon with her husband Jim, and started quilting. Ann's years of experimentation with dye and fabric have led to piles of quilts, worldwide travel, numerous group and solo exhibitions, and five books. Her collectors respect her viewpoint and her students admire her generosity and skill in teaching what she knows.
