Penny Sisto Exhibit at Carnegie Center for Art & History, New Albany, Indiana, October 24 – January 10, 2015

August 6, 2014

I just learned that Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, Indiana, will have an exhibit of Penny Sisto’s work beginning October 24, 2014,  through January 10, 2015.   www.carnegiecenter.org

I love her work, and  have her “Madonna and Child,” which I acquired many years ago. I see  the compassion in their quilted eyes and  feel the warmth of their spirit… just as Sisto said on her web site about some owners of her quilts seeing and feeling.

Penny’s web site is http://www.pennysisto.com, where you can see photos of her work in her gallery section.  You may see the compassion in their quilted eyes and feel the warmth of their spirit, too. This photo is of  “Turquoise Belt,” one of her pieces from the Heartbeat 2011 series.

Nancy Rink’s Quilts Stolen from her Home

August 1, 2014
Quilter, pattern designer, and dye artist, Nancy Rink, has had virtually all of her quilts stolen right out of her studio in Bakersfield, California, some time between 5:00 PM Friday 7/25 and 9:00 AM Monday 7/28. 

Nancy’s quilts are her livelihood and as she says, “I have trunk shows booked at guilds and it makes it very difficult to give a trunk show without my quilts. ” 

Nancy has posted images of the main quilts stolen here (there are probably more) just in case you see or hear of anything. Please call the BPD 661-327-7111 or 661-852-7850 if you see or hear anything suspicious.

Nancy is also offering a $1000 reward for whoever facilitates the return of her quilts.  As Reported by The Quilt Show
