Noreen Ring will be showing her small, intricate and colorful quilts in the Winer Family Community Room & Art Gallery, October 6-31.  These beautiful small quilts are of her own design, and would make a wonderful wall hanging addition to any home.  Take time to view their intricate detail. You will have the opportunity to meet Noreen at her Artist Reception, Saturday, October 15, noon-2 p.m. in our Art Gallery. October Artist

Noreen gives the following description of her work: “It is my intention to design works that reflect an “other-world” feeling with a sense of universality.  Earth, mountains, rocks, flowers, the sky, the stars, moons – things that we know exist with certainty but aren’t sure of the details and how they might fit together somewhere else.  When I design it is important for me to consider how comfortable existence would be in these worlds.

“The process of creating my art quilts is intuitive. I start with one piece of fabric that I am drawn to for its color and movement and then I slowly build a world. This is done by collaging small pieces of 100% commercially dyed cotton fabric that are cut to fit the composition. Once I am happy with the design, each piece of the whole is hand stitched (raw edge) into a quilt sandwich using embroidery and metallic threads. The art is then embellished with beads, crystals and yarn. They are sprayed with a UV protectant and finally framed behind glass or plexi.”
