"An internationally recognized contemporary textile artist, Velda Newman’s award-winning quilts have a three-dimensional quality to them. The Californian artist works in vivid colors and close-up detail of her subjects – shells, flowers, fruit are a few examples – creating stunning works of textile art.
Many of the works are on loan from the artist’s private collection."
It was a little tricky to get good photos in the exhibition space, but here's what I was able to come up with:
The quilt to the left is called Hydrangea.
This one is called Catch of the Day, and was made for the owners of a restaurant. The name of the restaurant is embroidered in the cream-colored background of the quilt near the top.
This quilt, called Wings, looked better in person than in my photo. I loved the butterfly's wing hanging below the edge of the quilt.
Bass: In Your Dreams, was made from a combination of fabric and paint. Again, the end result was really stunning in person.
