I had the opportunity to attend the opening of this exhibit, where I met one of the artists -- Briony Goddard, a talented quilter, embroiderer and beader. In fact, at present it's her beading for which she's best known -- and it is Metis beading at that! Below is a short video with Briony about this work:
While the work of the other quilters in the exhibit is lovely -- and Helen Brooks' hand-quilting was particularly superb -- Briony's contributions demonstrates a facility in both traditional and original design. She and I connected early in the evening and spent over an hour sharing experiences, information, discussing the exhibit and our respective artistic practices.
If you go to the show, look for Briony's beautiful paper piecing, her original circular hangings and her tiny crazy quilted, heavily beaded postcard.
