Kate Themel Will Represent CT in ArtQuilt Elements 2012 (Wayne, PA)

Themel_starsnotincSMSAQA-CT artist Kate Themel has been accepted into ArtQuilt Elements 2012.  Her piece, Stars Not Included (image, left) depicts a mariner’s sextant.  It was created using pieces of colored fabric which were layered and raw-edge appliqu├ęd and then densely quilted with free motion machine stitching. 

Jurors Elizabeth Barton, David Revere McFadden and Dr. Sandra Sider selected 48 pieces from over 660 entries.  Exhibiting artists hail from 42 US States and 11 different countries.  Kate is happy and proud to be one of 28 first-time exhibitors and the only artist from Connecticut in this year’s show.

AQE 2012 is the 10th Exhibition of this internationally acclaimed show set in suburban Philadelphia. "One of the distinctions of our show is our professional presentation of art quilts. The exhibition has been widely praised by reviewers and artists not only for exhibiting the quilts in a gallery setting but also for promoting the art quilt as an art form."
