SANDRA SIDER, Curator for the Texas Quilt Museum and a New York contemporary quilt artist specializing in cyanotype and other photographic processes since 1980. In “Art Work” you will find my studio quilts in public collections as well as quilts currently available for purchase and exhibition. (All my art work is created in a non-smoking, pet-free environment.) You can also learn about my personal quilt history, including quilts by others in my collection. The “Publications” page documents my writing in fiber art and art history; publications that illustrate my studio quilts are listed in the CV within “Bio”. Some of the exhibitions for which I have served as juror or curator can be found in “Curatorial.” If you are interested in booking PowerPoint lectures concerning quilts as contemporary art or arranging for one of my quilt critique workshops or portfolio reviews, please take a look at the “Teaching” page. I now am offering Creativity Workshop: Art Quilt Inspirations for up to twelve participants, lasting from three to five days at $300 per day plus travel expenses. The twelve volumes of The Studio Quilt publication series founded by me in 2010 can be purchased via Amazon.com. The series, which closed in 2013, documents a broad range of the quilt art genre.
A few spaces are still open for my week-long Creativity Workshop: Art Quilt Inspirations, September 25-29, 2016. The workshop definitely will be happening! But please register by August 1 to give me time to prepare enough materials for all the participants. For more information and to register:
While Stony Point is an interfaith center, there is no religious component to my workshop. The ambiance is quiet and idyllic, and the new Art Center is fabulous, with abundant space and light. All food served is organic, much of it grown in the Stony Point gardens. The Cenetr is a 45-minute drive from New York City.
