The Thread Whisperers (Ana Sumner, Debbie Herbst, Shirley Perryman, Mary Ritter)
spent a hectic day hanging our show at Page-Walker Art Gallery and History Center in Cary, North Carolina today. After all the hard work, we agree that the pieces make for a lovely sight. Here are some gallery shots, quickly taken so not perfect photography, of the lower and upper galleries. The first slide show is the lower gallery which showcases FABRICATED STRUCTURES of primarily the man-made variety.
This collage features the organic structures found in nature which are displayed in the upper gallery at Page-Walker Art Gallery and History Center.
Exhibit Dates: August 7, 2018 to Sept 2, 2018
Show Title: FABRICATED STRUCTURES
Artist Reception scheduled for August 17, 2018 from 6 to 8 PM. Open to the Public – please come!
Gallery Statement: The Thread Whisperers have challenged themselves to depict organic and inorganic structures in their fabric art. From the dramatic to the subtle, this exhibit will reflect the spirits of Debbie Herbst, Shirley Perryman, Mary Ritter and Ana Sumner through their anthologies of fabric, thread, embellishment and machine and/or hand quilting. View the beauty of all that surrounds us – skylines, buildings, landscapes and nature – focusing your vision through their unique perspectives.

Did not know I was Anonymous…must claim I am Dee Ann!!!
Hi Dee –
Didn’t mean for this post to go out again. I moved it to a new location off of the home page and it went live. Oh well! Glad you enjoy looking at the quilts. Woman Made Gallery in Chicago has accepted my “Quality Time” piece for its show “Quilt + Resist: Art, Politics, Storytelling”. That should be interesting – Nov 9-Dec 1. It would be fun to go there for the reception on the 9th as I have a sister and nieces/nephew there… we’ll see.
As always….just amazed at your artistry and your fellow quilters…what a joy to view your works!
