Comment on The 9th Northwest Contemporary Art Quilt Invitational by Cory Volkert

Tue, 30 Oct 2007 21:34:00 +0000

The thread that I am commenting on is old - but since it is about my work and I just discovered it, I will add a comment. It is a personal priority that my work NOT make reference to the work of others and, altho it is true that nothing is really new and previously undiscovered, I would point out that another of my priorities is that my work is always pieced, never raw edged or bonded. When I read the review, I was disappointed that the differences between my work and that of someone famous were less important than writing my piece off as referential to Jane's work.

Jeannette Meyer just emailed me to let me know that the book is actually available from any of the artists. She and Ann Johnston have secure online-ordering set up on their web sites. You can contact the artists at: Jeannette Meyer's web site: Ann Johnston's web site:

Olga is quite right that I did not discuss the organizing topics and discussion of these in my review. I realized as I was writing that this was the area I was avoiding. The topics of language, theme, voice, process, challenge and message were presented to each artist to respond to. Their responses (written) comprise the book. These responses are illustrated by one of their pieces, either from their previous body of work, or a new piece for each topic. The connections are philosophical, not literal. If you have the book, the topics and responses are the narrative that takes you through the book and the work. (And I recommend the book. It is interesting reading) In viewing the show, the topics are used to organize the show and quotes from the book separate the show into sections, however I did not find that I viewed the work in particular connection to the quotes or even as separate, discreet “topics”. Truly, I found the written responses much more illuminating as regards the topic, than I did the work itself, which sounds like a criticism of the work, which is not at all the case. In most cases I saw the work transcending verbal or written topics and I chose to view it that way, rather than bog myself down in pedantic analysis of connections and interpretations. When I tried to make those connections in retrospect I found I failed utterly and felt my attempts demeaned the art, so I abandoned that approach. My failing.

This review excited my interest, but then frustrated that interest by not discussing the very purpose of the exhibition: the dialogue between the artists. This exhibition sounds as if arises from a much deeper purpose than most art quilt shows which aim to do just that: show. The diversity of language in art quilts, the reason why the artists have chosen this medium for their expressions, are aspects which are too often skimmed over. Shame when the participants in and organisers of this exhibition have gone to such trouble to address these very questions that the review stops at description.

Good review, Emmie - the next best thing to being there. Pam's work has charm and is layered with meaning.

I'm curious about the "love of Metropolis." It seems like a slight piece compared to the whimsical drama of the others. I was disappointed that the review ended on it because it seemed anticlimactical.

I agree with the above. Metropolis is my favorite as well. The color scheme is fantastic.
