“Masters: The Art Quilt, Vol. 2″

I am honored to be included with the artists featured in this book! Curated and written by Martha Sielman, Executive Director of the Studio Art Quilt Association, each of the artists has a generous 10-page spread.
A touring exhibition of work featured in this book begins with the International Quilt Festival, Houston TX in November 2011. A full itinerary of the tour and links to exhibit venues can be found on the Studo Art Quilt Association website.
“A Summer of Sandhill Cranes”
Pioneer Park Bear Gallery, May 2011
“A Summer of Sandhill Cranes” featured the fiber art of Karin Franzen, ceramic tile art by Nancy Hausle-Johnson, and art photography by Christy Yuncker Happ. The exhibit focused on the life cycle and behavior of a pair of Sandhill Cranes that nest in George and Christy’s front yard every year. Visit the Christy Yuncker Photo Journal for more photos, videos, a blog, etc. George Happ produced a three part video walk-through of the exhibit which focused on each piece in sequence with a verbal explanation of the behavior exhibited in the piece. George apologizes for the background noise – the video was made for Christy’s mother, not for professional reasons, but he’s given his consent to provide links here. They are very informative and give a good sense of what the exhibit looked like!
