From 2006-2009, I was the managing curator for MetroTexural: Art Quilts from the Manhattan Quilters Guild. See the Quiltart web site for images of these quilts.

In 2006, I juried and curated Surface Tension, an exhibition of studio quilts, which has its own archival page in this site.

Along with co-juror Maxine Farkas, I juried Quilt 21: American Art Quilts for the 21st Century in 2000. Forty-two pieces were chosen, by forty-three artists from twenty-one states. This exhibition traveled for two years, 2001-2002.

Among the online exhibitions juried by me was the Nevada Art Quilt Competition, featured on the Quiltart web site in 2000.

My first foray into jurying and curating a studio quilt exhibition was the original Fine Focus national competition in 1998. These fifty small-format works toured the country until 2001. Each piece was sewn onto canvas mounted on 18-in.-square stretchers. The images from this exhibition have been archived online at www.quiltart.com/ff/. (Forty percent of the quilts were sold during the tour.)

In 1998 I curated an exhibition of photography for The Urban Center (NYC) entitled Walking the Waterway: Scenes along the Old Croton Aqueduct Trailway.

From 1986 until 1994, I was a curator at The Hispanic Society of America (NYC), where I organized several major exhibitions of materials from special collections.
