Form Not Function

I just got back from the Form not Function Show at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana. It is always an interesting show, but this year, I would have to say I am "underwhelmed."

One of the things that often happens is that the work of Louisville quilters doesn't show up in the show very often. That probably has to do with the judges often being local.

But this year, there were two quilts by Louisville artists in the show, and one was really a beautiful piece. It was a very subtle and lovely piece by Melinda Snyder,  in cream and white silks and cottons.

There were several other quilts that were very original and interesting, but no real "knock-outs" like we have seen in other years.
