Jury Duty

Today was a big day - something totally new. I was asked to be a juror for the upcoming quilt show - Celebrating Nature's Beauty in Stitches - at the Jenkins Arboretum in Wayne, PA, opening February 4th through the 27th, 2011.

What an interesting and rewarding experience - and a big responsibility. A total of 5 jurors from different mediums participated in the process. This is the first juried quilt show being hosted by the arboretum and we were very aware that this show needs to set the standard for future shows. We had a wonderful collection of entries - and after critical review I truly feel that we selected an inventory of quilts to that will impress quilters and non-quilters alike.

In a few days I'll be posting an entry on the arboretum's current show - An Outdoor Sculptural Exhibit of Sound and Motion - Wind Through the Trees. The variety of sculptural works is truly amazing and inspiring.
