I am so jazzed that a sampling of the new Dinner @ Eight Artists "Rituals" exhibit is featured in the October/November issue of Quilting Arts magazine. The issue features Judy Coates Perez on the Cover with her fabulous "Eight of Cups" piece. What an awesome piece! There are two articles that highlight Dinner @ Eight Artists. The first is "Q&A with Curators Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison" by Vivika Hansen DeNegre. This piece focuses on how Dinner at 8 Artists was founded, how it's themes are developed for annual exhibits and how the shows are juried by invitation. Jamie and Leslie foster a wonderful goal of balancing both established and emerging artists to put together a fantastic show. They have developed and continue to develop a strong set of artists who gather together at festivals to encourage strength and collaboration with one another. They also share their very inpirational quilts for the Rituals exhibit. Hats off to these very classy and strong women. The second article, "Rituals Gallery" focuses on Inspiring Quilts from the Dinner at Eight Artists. There are nine pieces by artists including Susan Brubaker Knapp with "I See the Moon," "Milo" by Jeanie Palmer Moore, ""Lost Rituals: Grief" by Susie Monday, "Cosmic Gears" by Loris Bogue, "Sunrise Serenade" by Barb Forrister, "8 of Cups" by Judy Coates Perez, "Walking with Mr. C and Scooter" by Gerrie Congdon, "Meditation" by Karen Ripps and "Boundary Waters 60 (Rock Time) by Virginia Spiegel. What an honor and blessing to be a part of this talented group of ladies. Here's to strong women. May we raise them. May we know them. May we be them!
