four may giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month Okan Arts is giving away an important tome about art quilting: Art Quilts Unfolding: 50 Years of Innovation, published by Schiffer. With Sandra Sider as editor and contributing authors Nancy Bavor, Lisa Ellis, and Martha Sielman, the book presents every aspect of the art quilt movement. There are four giveaways, each valued at $49.
Organized by decade, Art Quilts Unfolding takes you through a chronological history of art quilting including great visual timelines. There are 400 color photos of master works plus interviews and profiles of 58 influential artists. Important events and significant collections are also recognized.
The intro is by Janet Koplos, former editor of Art in America, and the final words are by Ulysses Grant Dietz, emeritus chief curator of the Newark Museum. Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), a non-profit professional organization that serves 3,500 members in nearly forty countries, originated the book.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Julie H of Loveland CO, Jo E of Cocoa Beach FL, Susan S of Federal Way WA, and Beth S of Jasper IN.
