Irene Roderick, Speaker
My artwork is currently grounded in the textile arts, focused on quilt making and fabric dyeing.  I am trained as a painter and I have always been interested in pattern and color and how these elements can evoke emotional and political responses. A few years ago, I encountered modern quilting and loved the idea of making a “utilitarian painting.” I learned to quilt and accidentally discovered improvisational quilting, an intuitive, spontaneous process I call “dancing with the wall.” The technique opened up a new-found creativity for me. This work is entirely intuitive and visceral. You can read even more about Irene HERE and on her website ireneroderick.com. 

Timna Tarr, Invitational
My work is about color and small compositions. Each block in a quilt is made as its own element, independent of the other blocks. After all of the blocks are constructed, my goal is to arrange the small compositions to play off each other and work together to create a larger whole. What keeps me engaged is watching how the project changes and transforms with the addition of each color and texture.  The resulting quilts are contemporary works, set in this time and place, which reference the rich tradition of quilt making. You can read more on Timna’s website:  timnatarr.com.
