Rituals~ Featured at International Quilt Market/Festival
Havel’s Scissors is proud to be a sponsor of Rituals by Curators, Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison. Jamie and Leslie, along with forty artists, have come together to reveal the art that can be found in everyday life. I had the privilege to see the exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this year. The ingenuity of the artwork in the exhibit is nothing short of spectacular! Each artist tells a story through the threads of the fabric. And the stories that are woven through each piece will inspire you to live life to the fullest and appreciate each and every opportunity we are given to share with loved ones.
We begin the series with Artist Natalya Aikens of Pleasantville, New York. She is a self described, artist, mother, wife, friend, and traveler. Natalya draws and designs and is particularly interested in architectural details. You can see her “House” come to life in Dacha.
“Dacha” is at the heart of the ultimate Russian summer ritual. No matter how small or large, ultra modern or old and dilapidated….the dacha (summer house) is where summer takes place.
My passion is to instill in my young daughters the love of their Russian heritage and a delight in art.
