Here's the schedule for the traveling exhibition:
- September 5, 2011 to November 6, 2011 - Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, Tillamook, Oregon (28 pieces) and Edmonds Conference Center, Edmonds, Washington (22 pieces)
- January 10, 2012 to March 12, 2012 - Sam Houston University Museum, Huntsville, Texas (unified display, 50 pieces)
- March 28, 2012 to June 24, 2012 - LaConner Quilt and Textile Museum, LaConner, Washington (unified display, 50 pieces)
All the art pieces use the same format, 18" x 45". It should be an impressive sight. You can see that there's a lot of big-stitch handwork in this, as well as machine quilting and beading. The large gold-colored piece is rust-dyed by Pam McManus, using an old shovel. The underwater-like evolutionary figures are cut from discharged and painted linen, and the reverse-embroidered human neurofibers are taken from an astonishing copyright-free photo I found on the web. Photographer Rick Wells did a great job of showing the shadows behind the negative spaces--I am sure this was a major factor in the jurors' decision.
