“The Mighty, Misty Monster:” Moby-Dick Embroidered Narratives by Susan Boardman, at Nantucket Whaling Museum, Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, through November 2015

April 19, 2015

“The Mighty Misty Monster”: Moby-Dick Embroidered Narratives  is at the Nantucket Whaling Museum on Nantucket Island in Massachusetts through November 2015, presented by the Nantucket Historical Association.

Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick and its endless possibilities for interpretation inspired artist Susan Boardman’s latest series of embroidered narratives. Drawing on the tradition of illuminated manuscripts, Boardman has adapted the techniques of seventeenth-century raised embroideries to depict richly animated whaleboats, frothy waves, proud ships, and noble, mighty whales, is the write up on the website.  http://www.nantuckethistoricalassociation.com/exhibits/index.html

Susan Boardman’s embroidery and creativity are exquisite. There are seventeen scenes from Herman Melville’s classic Moby-Dick.  You can see them online at:  http://www.susanboardman.com/GalleryMoby-Dick.php

I read the article about the exhibit in “Nantucket Today” magazine, Spring issue 2015.

Boardman had a 2010 exhibit at the Whaling Museum “Sometimes think of me:” Notable Nantucket Women through the Centuries, which was a show of embroidered narratives by her with biographies by Betsy Tyler.  You can go to: http://www.susanboardman.com/GalleryHistoricWomen.php

Here are the winners of the American Quilter’s Society 30th Anniversary Dogwood Online Quilt Competition as well as other quilt entries.  At least half of the fabric used in the challenge quilts was required to be from the AQS Anniversary Dogwood Fabric collection, although other fabrics and embellishments could also be used. Piecing and quilting by hand, machine, or both was acceptable, but tied quilts were not.   The Smilebox show is presented by The Quilt Show.
