Rose Garden is the first quilt in a series that has been brewing in the little gray cells for a while.

American Craft Museum acquires Jane's Visitation...
The American Craft Musem in New York City has acquired Jane Sassaman's quilt Visitations and will feature it in it's Six Continents of Quilts Exhibit: The American Craft Museum Collection opening July 3, 2002 at the USB PaineWebber Gallery (one block from the Museum, between 51st and 52nd Streets).
The exhibit will explore the ways in which art quilts have become an international phenomenon, transcending temporal, geographic, and cultural boundaries, as well as those that are arbitrarily posed between craft, painting, sculpture, and design. Traditional quilting and textile techniques, innovative processes, personal imagery and universal messages are all part of the world of art quilts today.
The exhibit runs through September 13, 2002. For more information, visit the American Craft Museum website at www.americancraftmuseum.org and click on "exhibits."
