quizgard—mind-blowing textile art


By Patricia Belyea 

LA CONNER WA  Thick luscious yarns punch through stiff buckram, creating 3-D patterns of circles, squares, spirals and triangles.

Historic Gaches Mansion In La Conner, WAArtist Liz Whitney Quisgard’s embroidery art boldly shouts from the walls of The Anne Brenaman Gallery at La Conner Quilt & Textile Musuem. Today the third floor of the historic home comes alive with color, texture and design.

Liz’s Byzantine-style textile art continues her six decades of work as a painter and sculptor. Outrageous and ebullient, the wall pieces range from squares to free-form shapes—crafted to look casual but masterminded to create impact.

The exhibit opened last Wednesday and will run through October 6.
