Okan Arts Blog

I am pleased to pass on the link to a wonderful blog presented by Patricia Belyea who, in addition to her own quilting and teaching, has been visiting artists who work in the quilt genre.  She visited me in the middle of April and since then has made a trip to Los Angeles and posted very interesting reports.  I am sure that you will enjoy her visit with me as well as her other articles.

To read mine, got to  https://okanarts.com/marianne-burr/

You can access the whole blog from there or just go to Okan Arts to see everything Patricia has to offer!Screen Shot 2015-04-30 at 11.32.05 AM copy

QUILT VISIONS 2014 – The Sky’s the Limit

I was honored to receive the Thomas Contemporary Quilt Recognition Award at the Opening even of Quilt Visions 2014.  The show continues to January 4, 2015 at the Visions Art Museum in San Diego.  It's a great show at a wonderful Museum.  Hope you can attend!

When I had time to look at the Quilt Visions 2014 Catalog, I discovered that a close up of my quilt, Eleven 3 Eleven, named for the date of the tragedy in Fukushima, Japan, had been chosen as the title page for all of the quilts.  What an honor!

My Quilt Cosmic Communication was awarded the Prix Apliquick in September 2014 in France. How exciting! I was not able to attend this wonderful event but the organizers sent me this image of my quilt with representatives of Apliquick.
