Kate Themel will Represent CT at Quilt National ‘13

SAQA-CT artist Kate Themel will exhibit her fiber artwork Morgan’s Flight next year at the Dairy Barn Arts Center.  Kate’s quilt was one of 85 pieces chosen for Quilt National 2013. Artists from all over the USA and around the world participate in this biennial juried competition, now in its eighteenth season. 

But Themel’s home town of Cheshire is not the only way she’ll be representing Connecticut at QN.  Her art quilt Morgan’s Flight depicts a nighttime aerial view of Bridgeport Center (Bridgeport, CT). Kate was inspired by the photography of Bridgeport native, professional pilot and photographer Morgan Kaolian. 

Congratulations to all the exhibitors!  To see a full list of participating artists and titles, visit the Dairy Barn’s website: http://dairybarn.org/quilt/index.php?section=226&page=381
