Linda White’s colorful art quilts stitch together snapshots of nature’s diversity. Primarily fish, ducks and birds, her fabric images present the illusion of their individual characteristics with colors, shapes and patterns created with a great sense of design. The opening reception from 5pm to 8pm on the First Friday, June 7, introduces this ‘stitch wizard’ and her new collection of unique fabric creatures in the gallery.
The artist’s machine-quilted fabric collages are carefully planned. Using basic sewing supplies and a standard sewing machine, White combines a variety of patterns to create her images of wildlife. Drawing inspiration from the multitude of designs found in nature, she uses the original form of actual animals as a basis for populating her imaginary world.
