One last piece at the Thread Lines exhibit to tell you about. When I came upon this large piece (45 x 51") I was immediately taken by its calm, subtle palette and tiny markings that invited a closer look.
It's made from handmade paper, cut and torn into small pieces and then reassembled in layers. There's some cheesecloth in there to help hold the pieces together. Finally, it's painted with a bazillion thin vertical lines.
After I looked at it for a while I realized that it's a conceptual clone of two quilts that I made a couple of years ago.

No wonder I liked it!
That's all I have to say about Thread Lines, on display at Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft through August 6.
