Alice Beasley: The Art of Illusion

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The name Alice Beasley is synonymous in the Bay Area with portraits in fabric of people and things—dancers, take-out food, water, soldiers, flowers, race horses, children, swimmers, family members, and more.  Her quilts have a painterly quality, but she works her magic without paints, dyes or surface treatments. Starting with ordinary fabrics, translucent silks and organzas, Alice layers and fuses snippets to create a collaged composition. She’ll describe this process—from inspirations to techniques to completed images—in her talk, The Art of Illusion.  You can read more about Alice at www.alicebeasley.com.
