Paper Filigree Exhibit

A talented paper filigree artist, Ann Martin, is featured in an exhibit now showing at the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvannia.

"The Spirit is Quilling: Rolled-Paper Filigree"
runs from May 24 - June 15, 2008.

Ann has a fresh, crisp style which embraces Thoreau's famous philosophy: simplify, simplify. Her work demonstrates an array of artistic paper filigree techniques in her signature style that avoids the fussy frills often associated with paper filigree. I have been an admirer for years, as well as having the privilege of her warm friendship and helpful critique of my own work.

I encourage anyone in the area to visit this unique exhibit, running concurrently with "Beyond Content: Decorative Wooden Boxes." The paper filigree exhibit also features two antique paper filigree tea caddies on loan from another museum. I hear the colors on these 1700's pieces are quite remarkable for their age. What a wonderful opportunity to view some historic art pieces!

The Brandywine River Museum
is located on US Route 1, not far from Wilmington, Delaware. (click for map and directions) It is open daily, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

I'd love to attend, but Pennsylvania is a tad distant for a weekend jaunt from Idaho.
If you do see the exhibit, please share a comment here and tell me about it!

A warm welcome to all the visitors from various quilling groups that I see are popping in to read. Don't be shy....say 'hi'! (click on 'comments' below any post for the comment box)

By the way, I've been enjoying talking with you on the cottage forum.
