Join us for a lecture by SFQG member and local artist, Catherine Sherman: “Color and Pattern Across Period and Place. Why I chase quilts, why I make them, and why art is the answer for everything.”
Catherine describes quilts as narrative vessels connecting past to present while giving us something to hold in the future. She’ll unpack her journey as an artist/maker and share her recent work and ongoing projects designed to engage the social imagination. Instead of focusing on “how,” we’re invited to slow down and consider “why?”
Catherine has been a member of SFQG since 2006. She joined the guild with big dreams, a fabric stash, and little experience – she found instruction, inspiration, and lifelong friendships. Catherine has led workshops at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, BAMPFA, the Randall Museum, and many school & community settings.
