Hollis Chatelain - The Emotion of Color in Art

Internationally renowned and award winning artist Hollis Chatelain will be presenting an online lecture titled 'The Emotion of Color in Art'. Her description: Since 2000 my work has progressed into monochromatic. Working in just one color has been an interesting and exciting adventure. Art can carry a strong emotion and specific colors reinforce these emotions. I will be speaking about the evolution of color, the significance of colors in our society, and how we can use different colors to emphasize what we want to say in our art.

Linda Luggen "Judge for Yourself"

Zoom Lecture

Linda Luggen is a judge for the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges.

Linda is a quiltmaker, teacher, lecturer, designer, and founding board member for NACQJ who served as secretary. She has spent over thirty-five years sharing her knowledge of quilts and quiltmaking. She designs many of her own appliqué patterns. Her color sense and multi-layer techniques have led her to a new world of freedom in creative appliqué designs that she loves to share. Her quilts have won awards nationally and have been published in several magazines.

Linda’s lecture ‘Judge for Yourself’ will give an overall insight into the process of quilt judging. It also answers questions such as “what does a judge look for when judging design, piecing, appliqué, etc. The purpose is to help you know how to “judge” your own quilts before sending them off for the real thing.

Carl Hentsch

For November we have a Zoom lecture from Carl Hentsch of 3 Dog Design Company. Carl is a quilter, quilt designer, and author. He will share his story with us in a presentation titled “My Life in Quilts”. The description is: Take a journey with me from the beginning of my quilting career to the present. Learn more about me, 3 Dog Design and how I got my start in quilting. I show many quilts that I have made, including my original designs from my books Stars 'N' Strips Forever, Amish-Inspired Quilts for Today’s Home and New York Beauties and Flying Geese, as well as quilts completed for various magazines and fabric manufacturers. See and hear how my quilting aesthetic has changed through the years “making the modern traditional and the traditional modern.”
