Laura Joy Fendel: Israeli Exhibition!

Our very own Laura Joy will participate in a beautiful show called “The Fabric of Our Lives” @ PICO in Jerusalem.  We are so very proud of her! The show opens Monday!

Left : Arrows of Intension – pieces of fabric in my stash became connections in a full wall quilt.   21” X 46” editor’s comment: intension and intention are 2 different words. intension used here means the internal content of a concept.
Middle: Ashie’s Tunnels – My grandson Asher drew a picture a few years ago of houses and underneath were tunnels.  He inspired this quilt.
Right: City in Motion – There are sections of communities connected to each other.
Yup…that’s Laura Joy on the left!
If Jerusalem is a little out of your way, just have a bit of patience. Her newest work will appear in a group show right here in Portland, Oregon opening February 10, 2019.
Stay tuned for the details!
