Artwork at The Parade of Homes

Three of my art quilts, including The Organic Garden, above, will be on display at a stunning house in the Parade of Homes in Lancaster, PA, June 13 - June 21.
The home is an open, light filled contemporary, designed by Donald Maim of MM Architects, Inc., and built by Ebersole Brothers Construction, Inc. Since the home is sold and the clients are set to move in after the event, they decided to showcase it as a gallery space rather than stage it with borrowed furniture. My work, including Sumac, above, and Tall Blue Lettuce, below, is joining that of others from the PA Arts Experience. Sumac and Tall Blue Lettuce are in the dining room; The Organic Garden is in the master suite. Click here for a view of the floor plan and more information about the house, including the address and directions.
I stopped by the home yesterday to drop off my work, and am very excited about how fabulous all of the art looks in this elegant home, which is sited overlooking lush farmland. I think it also provides a good forum to illustrate how well fiber art can be integrated into a art collection and displayed effectively in a home setting.

These are wonderful pieces--so lively and crisp. I'd love to see how they look in the house with other work. Did you take any pictures at the site?

Thanks, Terry! No pictures yet, as it was still being set up, but I'm planning on going back once the tour opens. The curator is doing a GREAT job; I'm lucky to be part of a group with so much talent.

I look forward to seeing pictures in situ. Pairing model, or notable, homes with local artists sounds like a win win situation for everyone, including the viewers. Wonderful idea.
