Art is all around us. Art Quilters are individuals that have taken an ordinary utilitarian item, a quilt, and elevated it from the beds to the walls. This year’s featured artists, Aileyn Renli Ecob and Jean Renli Jurgenson, have excelled at creating spectacular fine art quilts. Aileyn focuses on nature and the soft curves and circles she sees in the beauty of foliage in the world around her. Jean focuses on the edges and lines of perspective that architecture and man-made structures bring to the communities of people.
But one can never put a true artist in a defined box and Jean and Aileyn are no exception. Art is in everything and these sisters leap into personal unknowns and create pieces that you may easily mistake for their sibling’s work.
Sit back, get comfortable and enjoy their video presentation and their personal galleries, where you can take your time to marvel in this fantastic display of quilts.
