We look forward to members with last names R-Z to bring refreshments.

Connie Bloom

Connie will be joining us at our April meeting as our guest speaker on the sensitive use of color. This will focus on how to make eye-popping work with bold colors as well as the more sensitive use of natural or muted colors for a sophisticated look. There will be lots of eye candy, too! Connie will bring her own felted works and art quilts as well as other objects to help us develop an eye for colors. This promises to be an entertaining and informative evening.

After 30 years as a newspaper journalist, Con-nie Bloom has turned her prose to visual poetry — art quilts. She hand dyes, hand paints and hand prints much of her work. Her quilts demonstrate a strong sense of colors and their interplay, with results that delight the eye.
