HENRY — The Marshall-Putnam Quilter's Guild will present Grace Errea at their next meeting at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Henry United Presbyterian Church, 511 Wirt St. in Henry.
Errea is a self-taught artist and her work illustrates and has been recognized for exceptional primary use of values and secondary use of color. Her focus in value makes it easy for her and her students to create inspiring botanicals, landscape scenes and portraits, in any color. Grace’s innovative techniques and her focus on value have attracted widespread interest from quilters, as well as national and international galleries, museums and publications. She has been invited to show her art and teach overseas and in various locations in the United States. Her class offerings are well attended, in demand, and are presented in a fun, informal and educational way. The aim is to inspire, develop and find that artist within each student or listener.
Errea designs patterns for Hoffman of California Fabrics. Her patterns are found in Keepsake quilting, Nancy’s Notions and Hancock of Paducah. She is the author of the C&T book titled "Impressionist Applique – Exploring Vaue and Design to Create Artistic Quilts." She is the authority of how to use value to develop amazing quilts. She has appeared on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Timms, Quilting Arts.
At the meeting, there will also be a collection of Community Service Quilts, Name Tag Drawing and Show and Tell.
