Color Improvisations to Open July 11 in Stuttgart, Germany

In mid-2008, Nancy Crow invited several artists to submit work for consideration for Color Improvisations, an exhibit she was developing with Genie Curtze. The work was to be based on a 4-plex format, machine pieced, and large - 6 to 8 feet square. The resulting exhibit, Color Improvisations, will consist of 54 large machine pieced works by 26 artists from the United States, Switzerland, Germany, and Canada. These artists are dedicated to expressing their individual visions. We are honored that the exhibit will include five CQA members: Bonnie Bucknam, Janet Steadman, Pat Hedwall, Nancy Cordry and Melisse Laing. The opening venue will be the Haus der Wirtschaft in Stuttgart, Germany. The exhibit will run from July 11 to August 25, 2010, with the grand opening reception on Sunday, July 11, 2010 at 2 pm. Additional venues booked thus far are:

Galerie Lac
St. Marie aux Mines, France
September 16-19, 2010 (this is during the European Patchwork convention, check the website for more information)
Kunst und Gewerbe (Museum of Art and Commerce)
Regierungsprasidium Karlsruhe, Germany
May 8 - June 12, 2011

The exhibition will travel throughout 2010-2012. Additional venues in Europe, Japan, and the United States will be announced. A catalog of the exhibit will be available in July 2010.
