Marge's works combine contemporary quiltmaking and collage in a fresh way in both fabric and on paper. She also travels with a conscience, and brings her collage/quilts and workshops to compromised local and international communities trying to rebuild their lives.
Today she turned me on to an interesting indie project in which she's participating called The Sketchbook Project.
Artists receive a sketchbook (for a small fee--it's an indie-financed project), choose a theme, fill it up by Janurary 15, 2011, and send it back. Then your sketchbook becomes part of a traveling exhibition, ultimately coming to rest in the Brooklyn Library (you don't get it back, but you do get a notification every time it's checked out!) For a bit more, your book can be put online for internet viewing.
This bears looking into, no? Let me know if you participate, and I'll let you know if I participate. It's a pact.
