Last year's theme for the Dayton Visual Arts Center's Annual Open Members' Show was "Darkness" and I entered my "Fireflies" quilt (which is currently touring with the "Best of 2011 show). This year is "Light" so I entered "Little Sister's Kite Tails". I thought this fit the theme because the background is white and the colors are lighter shades of blues and greens, because the triangle fabrics are only sewn down in the middle so it appears as if the fabrics are so light they are lifting away from the quilt, and also because a kite tail has to be light enough to fly.
The show runs from July 15-August 20 with an opening reception this Fri., July 15 from 5-8 pm. DVAC is located at 118 N. Jefferson St., Datyon, Ohio and is open from Tues.-Sat. 11 am-6 pm.
