Textile Artists of Virginia host:

Denise Labadie

 “Stone Portraits and Stonescapes”


Sunday – November 17, 2024

1:30PM – via ZOOM

(see registration info below)

Denise makes art quilts of megalithic stones, monoliths, and centuries old monastic ruins. Drawing on what is now a portfolio of nearly sixty "stone portraits", Denise will discuss her development of both a recognizable style and self-identifying "story", and her evolving adoption, use, and "tweaking" of select art quilt composition and construction techniques (including fabric painting) and “best practices”.

Topics also include:

–        telling the stones’ stories through her art

–        how she constructs her stone structures and landscapes

–        her management and control of color, texture, & dimensionality

–        her struggles relative to perspective, depth, and shadowing

–        the critical role of craftsmanship and art fundamentals in

   creative expression
