For example: a backyard herb garden, a baby’s face after eating blueberries, a field of corn, a stunning supermarket display, a fancy restaurant setting, a family meal, a simple cup of tea …..For the RMQM exhibit, they were encouraged to make use of complementary colors, overtly or subtly. The Denise Labadie Solo Exhibit | Stone Portraits and Stonescapes In the Northeast Gallery, Denise displays her work of creating contemporary art quilt portraits of Celtic megalithic (Bronze Age) stones and monoliths, and monastic ruins. She hand paints most of all her own fabric, and uses varying combinations of reverse appliqué, turned edge appliqué, raw edge appliqué, inserting, free form strip piecing, couching, and “thread shadowing” (a variation on thread painting) to achieve her trademark style. Denise’s quilts are known for their strong emotionality and, technically, their assertive textures, their perspective and shadowing, their use of color and contrast, craftsmanship and technique precision. Denise has exhibited both nationally and internationally. The Anne Olsen Collection | From the RMQM Permanent Collection RMQM is pleased to exhibit a new series of quilts recently added to its permanent collection from Anne Olsen. For years, Anne has methodically rescued orphan quilt blocks, dissembling and then reworking them to refine the color scheme or improve the piecing accuracy. Often salvaging fabric from other old blocks to complete a set. The blocks then have a second chance at life in a finished quilt (Quiltmaker magazine, September/October 2003).
