"Forest Interrupted" by Dawn Flores

Locality: Martinsville City

Piedmont Arts
215 Starling Avenue
Martinsville, VA 24112

Driving Directions

Dawn Flores, Creative Director for The Forest Project, tells the story of how she collaborated with other artists to document a 60-acre urban forest clear-cut for development.

Dawn has created over 1,000 fabric patterns from photographs she took, of the now clear-cut property, and works with quiltmakers to sew quilts commemorating what was lost. Her slide presentation includes detailed information about designing fabric on Spoonflower, a web site dedicate to creating fabric for designers.

There will be time for a question and answer period and opportunity to view fabric samples and quilts made for The Forest Project.

This program has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and is supported, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund.
