Mary Pal is one of the artists selected for publication in Sandra Sider's forthcoming book, The Studio Quilt, No. 6: State of the Art.
Issue No. 1 features Ludmila Aristov and is available on Amazon.com. You can even take a peek at some of the pages by clicking on the book: http://tinyurl.com/3mxkqr4.
These books are of tremendous value to us as quilt artists. You not only get to see the work of some very talented artists you might not be familiar with, but also to read Sandra's critique of each individual piece, which informs and educates about what jurors and gallery owners consider when they evaluate art quilts.
The cost of no. 1 is $11 plus postage. By late June, both no. 2 and no. 3 (Jeanette Meyer and Linda Colsh) should be available. No. 6 contains the work of 60 contemporary fibre artists whose work Sandra considers "State of the Art."
