Seems like it has been a month of art inspirations.

 

Had a wonderful trip to the Dali Museum to see both the Frida Kahlo exhibit as well as the Dali paintings.

Made a quick trip to the Mancuso Quilt Florida Show in Orlando.

This was an interesting hanging sculpture in the Convention Center.

And then another quick but rewarding trip was made to see the SAQA Stitched: Embracing the Quilt as Fine Art exhibit in Stuart, Florida. (Runs Jan. 20th til Feb. 25th, so you still have a chance to see it.) It is a very impressive show.

I wish I had photos of all the quilts to share. I am sharing what I was able to photograph around the attendees. And that is my excuse for the quilts being shot at an angle.

These four are by Ellen Lindner (top two quilts), Karol Kusmaul (bottom left) and Margaret Knepper (bottom right).img_0115
