Rituals - Acceptances!

"Rituals"  An exchange between friends. A handshake. A kiss before bedtime. The artist at work.  A sun salutation. The wave before boarding the school bus. A song, a word, a meditation. A habit, a custom.  The traditional toast at a gathering. A rite of passage. The sacred moments of the ordinary.  Rituals:  What are yours?

Dinner at Eight Artists are happy to announce that the following art quilts have been accepted into the special exhibit "Rituals." Each piece measures 24" wide by 60" high, vertical format.  The exhibit will debut at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach July 26-29, 2012 and is sponsored by Moore's Sewing Centers. It will also be shown at the International Quilt Market (Oct 27-29) and Festival (Oct 31-Nov 4) and is sponsored by Havel's Sewing.
