High Desert Colors, Elizabeth Bamberger
Elizabeth Bamberger, Shirley MacGregor and Gerrie Congdon had art quilts selected for an exhibit at the Portland Airport. Here are the details:
Title: Window Seat
Location: Portland International Airport, post-security Concourse A
Date: April 2014 through October 2014
Subject: The exhibit is built around an essay written by Jim Earl, a literature professor at U of O. In the essay, Earl uses images taken from Google Earth to educate people about the land below them as they fly. Click Here to read the essay and see the images that he used. For the exhibit, the quilts are next to text for which each is visually appropriate.
I would encourage you to check out the essay. If you have flown across the plains or over Oregon, it is a good read.
