April Book and Quilt Exhibitions in the SF Bay Area

There are three interesting exhibitions in the SF Bay Area this month. Well, more than that, but I have work in three.

In San Francisco, there's Musubu: Book Art: Tokyo-California at The American Bookbinder's Museum, April 7 - May 19, 2018. Reception: April 7, 2018, 5-8pm. 355 Clementina Street, San Francisco, CA. Curated by Jody Alexander and Hisako Nakazawa. Musubu means "to tie, to connect, or to be bound by friendship."



This exhibit was shown in Japan at the Urawa Art Museum in the Fall.
A page opening from the catalogue (which will be available in SF as well.)


My letterpress haiku perpetual calendar/book, Days Made Strange is in this show.

In San Jose, we have the Studio Art Quilt Associates exhibition, Guns: Loaded Conversations at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, April 22 - July 15, 2018. My quilt, "Hand Gun" is showing there. The opening is Sunday, April 22, 2018, 3-5pm. Address: 520 First Street, San Jose.
Note: just found out this show will travel next year to The New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA, January 9, 2019 to April 6, 2019.

If you would like to read a little, my creative nonfiction story, "Between Stops" was posted at Litro.co.uk, a literary online magazine. You can click on the title, or here.

And it's National Poetry Month! I'm feeling behind.
And my 30-year-old sewing machine just gave up.
