Kathie Kerler Selected for Exhibition and Grant

Kathie Kerler is one of forty artists selected to create work for the upcoming Studio Art Quilt Associates' Radical Elements Exhibition. Each artist will create a new work influenced by an element from the periodic table (Kathie's is #15, phosphorus). Inspirations may come from anything relating to the element, whether it is a play on the name, its color, properties, or the products made from it. As the second part of the Radical Elements theme, the artists are asked to move quilting beyond the usual materials of fabric and thread, exploring the function and decorative properties of different surfaces and stitching materials. Work is due September 2013 and venues are being confirmed.

Kathie has been awarded a Personal Development Grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, which encompasses Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties for Spring 2013.
