The MusicMaker: Uncle Dave
I found out today that The MusicMaker was accepted in Art Quilts Lowell 2012:Music at the Brush Gallery & Artist Studio.
The exhibit will be open August 9 - September 13, 2012. A reception will be held Aug 11. The exhibit was juror-ed by Karey Bresenhan co-founder of the International Quilt Festival. How cool is that?
I met Uncle Dave Sturgell about twenty-five years ago when I interview him for an article for Bluegrass Magazine. My husband went with me to the interview and we ended up staying the whole day. He and his wife offered to make tomato sandwiches for us for lunch. He spent the day telling me about all the beautiful instruments he had made. One of his pride and joys was a guitar made for Johnny Cash.
Uncle Dave couldn't read a note of music but could play the most beautiful music ever. My husband took the photograph that I used for my inspiration for this piece. I included that photo on the book shelves.
I also found out today that my friend Bonnie Outllette had two pieces accepted, Bette and Elvis. Aren't these fun?
