Art quilts on display at library throughout July
– Art quilts by featured artist Jeanne Aird will be on display at the Paso Robles City Library throughout the month of July.
“I’ve been making art for as long as I can remember,” said Aird. “Using fabric, dyes, thread, yarn, paint and other exciting materials I create ‘Art Quilts’ which are fabric paintings.”
Aird said nature and the environment are strong influences in the work that she creates. She said that many of her quilts are abstract and focus on capturing the colors and textures of nature.
“Photographs of places near where I live, including my own backyard, inspire my work,” said Aird. “The gnarly branches of the hundred-year-old oak trees on our property provide me with images to recreate in some form or another.”
The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. ‐ 8 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. ‐ 5 p.m. For more information on library programs and events, call (805) 237‐3870 or visit www.prcity.com/library.
