An Art Quilter's Interview

I just listened to a New England public radio half hour interview of Jeanne Williamson. Click here to go to that link and enjoy. The interviewer teaches art at a museum. He has enough knowledge to ask interesting and pertinent questions about art in the fiber medium and Jeanne has good answers.

If her name sounds familiar but you can't place it, maybe her recently published book, "The Uncommon Quilter", is the reason. Or it could be that you've seen information about the two shows currently showing her work. One is Distinctive Directions curated by textile artist, Lisa Call, at the Lux Center’s 2008 Fiber Invitational in Lincoln, Nebraska. The other exhibition is "Art Quilt Elements 2008" at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Jeanne has blogged about the pieces in each of these shows. Click on her name in the first paragraph to read her posts.

This was fascinating. Thanks. As you say, he asked excellent questions, so unlike an interview I heard last year on NPR. Still a bit of the patronizing, "Oh, my this is really like art!" attitude, but he admitted it.
