Yvonne Porcella 50 Years an Artist

Jan. 16, 2016 - Apr. 03, 2016
Yvonne Porcella: Fifty Years an Artist is a retrospective marking over five decades of Porcella’s career designing and creating unique garments, wall hangings and art quilts since 1962. Porcella is the founder of Studio Art Quilt Associates and served as its first president for 11 years. Her work is featured in museums and galleries throughout the world and she has taught and lectured in the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, and Japan. The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution acquired her quilt, Takoage, in 1994 and included it along with 300 objects from the 15 additional Smithsonian museums in a national touring exhibition honoring the 150th anniversary of the Smithsonian. Porcella’s work is a vibrant expression of an artist who knows how to handle color and humor with an endless palette. Her work has toured in major national and international exhibitions of contemporary American quilt makers and is held in private and corporate collections.

Modern Simplicity

Jan. 16, 2016 - Apr. 03, 2016
Textile artist Kathleen Probst brings Modern Simplicity to Visions Art Museum at Liberty Station, San Diego, California. Modern Simplicity reflects Idaho artist Kathleen Probst’s path toward minimalism. Her work is influenced by mid-century modern furniture, and the art and architecture of the Bauhaus era. Using her hand-dyed fabric, a camera and a computer, Probst balances clean lines and simplicity with design elements of strong color that define her shapes. Large expanses of open space provide a stage for subtle quilting letting her bold graphic designs inform the work. Visions Art Museum is located in the arts district of Liberty Station, 2825 Dewey Road, San Diego, California, USA. Museum hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission to the exhibitions is $7, Visions Art Museum members enjoy free admission. The museum store is open free of charge during regular museum hours. For more information: www.visionsartmuseum.org or call 619-546-4872.
