Cindy Grisdela: Book Signing and Artist Lecture

November 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Book Signing – Noon to 4 pm

Artist Lecture – 2pm

Cindy Grisdela –  Meet the Artist and Book Signing.

Artful Improv: Explore Color Recipes,  Building Blocks & Free Motion Quilting.

My abstract art quilts are designed improvisationally without a preconceived pattern, a little bit like jazz music. Each decision about color and shape influences the next, and complex blocks repeat like beats of a melody, calmed by irregular plain areas that provide a resting place for the eye.
