Anne Daughtry Art Quilter

Most of my work involves hand dyed fabrics, cotton and silks, images and landscapes from photographs of my travels, having lived abroad for 20 years, in Turkey and Germany. I have a quirky sense of humor which plays out in much of my work. I have no formal art education, but have sewn all my life.
All images are from photos taken by the Artist, or her friends, with permission granted to use them.
Notable Exhibits:
• Bridge 2017 Studio Art Quilt Associates Oregon statewide exhibit of art quilts themed “Bridge” traveling for two years. Anne has two quilts, Linking Europe to Asia, depicting the first Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul, and Bridge to Progress? A fanciful transportation hub with trucks, light rail, bridge in construction with the paving machine, and of course, a minor accident with traffic backed up.

• Pathways 2017 Studio Art Quilt Associates Valley South group currently has an exhibit at the Memorial Union at OSU for Quilt County. Anne created a new technique using painted cloth, tulle, depicting the subject of a street in old Istanbul, from a photo taken in 1972.

• Blending Poetry in Cloth 2015 Oregon Studio Art Quilt Association traveling exhibit. Juried show depicting the artist’s response to a song, a poem, creating the image in the quilt. Anne’s was The Painted Ship, based on The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. As a retired English teacher, whose father’s favorite poem was the Rime, this was an absolute no brainer decision. Execution was a bit more difficult.

• Exploring Layers, 2014 Oregon Studio Art Quilt Association’s traveling exhibit. This group of art quilts are juried from member submissions by noted artists and jurors, and travels the state for two years. “Exploring Layers” has been at Coos Art Museum, Coos Bay; Chehelem Cultural Center, Newberg; and will be exhibited at Pioneer Place, Portland during the National SAQA convention in April, 2015.

• Passion Forward 2013 also by SAQA members from the Willamette Valley Southern region was exhibited at Oregon State University during Quilt County, 2013. Anne exhibited several quilts from her “Old Stones” series, based on photographs of antiquities taken during her time living in the Middle East.
