AUGUST LECTURE: "PIGMENT PATCHWORK"
10 a.m. Saturday, August 27, 2022 Hybrid Meeting via Zoom and in person at Waterstone Community Church 5890 S. Alkire St. Littleton, CO 80127
Rhonda Denney discovered quilting in 2004, and began working with fabrics as her palette. Soon after, she began applying pigment directly on fabric. This led to her Pigments Patchwork technique, a unique method that uses a variety of color applications, including makeup. If you have old lipsticks and eyeshadow, you’ll love her trunk show and the workshop!
Rhonda’s work has been honored with numerous awards, most notably from Front Range Contemporary Quilters and Studio Art Quilt Associates. She and husband Ray Fallen live on 18 acres outside Emporia, Kansas. Their menagerie of rescue animals includes 5 horses, 2 goats, 2 cats and a dog.
In this hour-long trunk show, Ronda will show her recent work, including some from her series “The Eyes Have It.” In these quilts, Rhonda focused on the eyes of various animals, and how pigment deepened the animal’s gaze.
