2019 Raffle Art Quilt:
“Get into the Wild!”
This year’s art quilt celebrates Broads’ 30 years of exploring and protecting the varied landscapes we love. Comprised of four panels representing Mountains, Forests, Waters, and Canyon Country, each panel was created and crafted by a different artist. A fifth artist inventively combined the panels into the final piece with the addition of our Kokopella Broad about to step off into the wild for an adventure.
You’ll be charmed by the playful detail—the artful asymmetry of protruding elements on each panel, and delightful embroidered woodland creatures in the Forests section. Measuring 35” wide by 54” tall, the quilt has a pocket on the back so it may be hung on a rod. There is also a label naming the participating artists.
Tickets 5 for $20
Tickets are available in multiples of $20 only. The drawing will be held in mid-December.
Meet the artists
Peg Baker – Quilt Assembly
Peg loves to sew! She also loves music, having studied piano since childhood, she has accompanied church choirs most of her adult life. Music making and sewing, however, are sedentary and often solitary pursuits—so she enjoys getting out in the wild with Broads. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
Linda Helding – Waters
Linda has worked in dyeing fabrics and yarn since the 1970s and has been a knitter since age 8. Currently, she is exploring sculptural fabric ideas using recyclables. When asked what inspired her panel design, she declared, “Bubbles!”
Cyndi Holman – Canyon Country
Cyndi’s love of canyon country and knowing of Broads’ work to protect the San Rafael Swell inspired her quilt panel design. When not quilting or cooking, Cyndi travels with her fisherman husband, chasing the trout and gorgeous Colorado scenery.
Betsy Janeczek – Forests
Betsy lives in Eugene, Oregon and enjoys sewing, photography, drawing, and painting. Her panel includes aspens, a hickory thicket, and coastal giants like the Sequoia redwood. She shared, “It may be a fantasy that all those trees would co-exist in the same area, but my dream is that we humans could value all forests, all landscapes, and all the wild areas enough to fight to save them.”
Susan Kearns – Mountains
Susan is an artist and sometimes quilter who serves as Broads’ Communications Director. She’s always loved the mountains and once she moved into them more than 20 years ago, she swore she would never be a flatlander-city-dweller again. She lives in Durango, Colorado.
