Art should be fun

Fun to make, fun to look at, fun to have around. I like it bright, and bold, and big enough to see. If it is functional too, all the better! My work reflects my like of pink flamingos and Hawaiian shirts, precision and accuracy, though not necessarily in that order or all at the same time! I want people to smile, or maybe do a double take. Any finished work is only as good as its initial drawing so I strive for accuracy at the beginning. I want my work to always be the very best I can make it. "Good enough" applies to washing floors, never to art. Keep learning, keep playing, and make artist friends to encourage and inspire you!

Hope you enjoy my art!

Virtual Exhibit - Abstract, Traditional and all In-between

"Abstract, Traditional and all In-between" a collection of small quilts and fiber art by Kathy Steere was intended to be presented at the Steel Beam Theater in St. Charles, IL April 3 - May 17, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was cancelled. But because of the wonders of technology, you can see the virtual exhibit right here on this very website. (next section down - in Galleries ) 

My thanks to Sharon S. at Cultural Connections as curator of the theater gallery space and to Sharon M. for the opportunity to meet Sharon S.  Thanks also to all those who helped spread the word about the exhibit and the cancellation thereof!

This is a very eclectic collection of ideas, subject matter, styles and techniques. All are done in the manner of a "quilt" meaning three layers of fabric stitched together. "Wholecloth" is a single piece of fabric used for the entire front of the quilt. With two small exceptions, everything was on hand - I only had to purchase beads for poppy seeds and green fabric for pickle relish.

Fiber is the medium for this art exhibit. Every quilt, every piece of art has a story and some of those stories are told in blog posts. If you ask, I'm happy to tell you or your group more than you ever wanted to know!

Thank you for visiting my website and this virtual exhibit.

Without further ado, please sit back and enjoy "Abstract, Traditional and all In-between"...
