Textures ~ Quilted Works Inspired by Nature

Textures Art Quilt event at Gallery 5

Artist Reception - August 6th, 5pm to 8pm

Exhibit - August 6th through September 18th

“Textures” is an exhibit of Art Quilts by two exceptional artists; Denise Oyama Miller & Nancy Ryan

Unlike traditional quilts with established patterns handed down from generation to generation, art quilts push the boundaries of the traditional quilt world. Contemporary quilt artists incorporate a multitude of techniques into exciting textile creations inspired by the artist’s life experience and personal vision.

Fremont California artist Denise Oyama Miller is a versatile artist who incorporates a variety of techniques in her quilts including painting, hand printed fabrics, applique, and collage. Nature is an important source of inspiration for her. She is always looking for patterns, textures, and color combinations found in nature that can be interpreted in fabric. While many of her works focus on landscape, others are delightful abstractions with a strong sense of design, paying homage to her Japanese ancestry and to Japanese art.

Oyama Miller completed her formal education in mathematics at the University of California at Berkeley, then worked in Information Technology for 30 years. Since retirement she has focused on her art full-time. She is widely collected, has earned many awards, and is a Juried Artist member of the Studio Art Quilt Associates.

Nevada textile artist Nancy Ryan has been honing her craft for over 40 years. Art quilting is her passion, fulfilling her deep-seated desire to create, and to share her life experience. Ryan’s quilts combine many techniques, including a pointillist technique inspired by impressionist painting. Stitching gives every piece an added layer of texture and depth.

Ryan has taught at the world-renowned Empty Spools Seminars, and has exhibited at the Houston International Quilt Festival, and the Texas and Virginia Quilt Museums. She has been a member of Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA) for 20 years.
