More than 50 hand quilted, printed, hand embellished and picturesque art quilts will be on exhibition in ARTrageous: Art Quilts Year XVIII.
All artworks are accompanied by a story and artist biography. The artworks were selected based on the 2013 juror’s theme, “ARTrageous,” encouraging textile artists to step outside of the box in some context, reflecting a twist on the traditional, an interesting technique that was unique to their work, or simply something that was so extremely bold, that their colleagues would exclaim, “what!?!” The challenge was to move beyond any traditional style, context or subject that they had relied on in the past, or to have taken their traditional context and mix it up in a way that is beyond being bold.

The Fine Art Photography of Brenda Priddy
January 31, 2014 – March 8, 2014
Artist reception: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Fri., January 31st, 2014
Many know of Brenda Priddy as the anonymous person behind the images we see of many of the test cars as they are being moved from the proving grounds in the desert. Brenda has spent her days waiting for new prototype cars to be transported into or out of the auto proving grounds in the middle of the desert. Her photographs have been seen in many magazines and publications. Ms. Priddy will make a rare public appearance in late January for the opening of her exhibition called Automotive Artifacts: The Fine Art Photography of Brenda Priddy
While waiting for test cars to photograph, Ms. Priddy is always looking for other subjects to photograph and has found many in places as diverse as junkyards and classic car exhibitions where hood ornaments, architectural lines of car designs and nameplates have all been photographed. These have all become her focus for this exhibition.
“These images recall a day long past when the automobile stood as an iconic figurehead in the American life,” Priddy explains.
