This just in from artist and environmental water activist, Linda Gass:
I’ll be giving a presentation entitled “Raising
Environmental Awareness for Water through Textile Art”
Sunday, May 17th,
from 2-4 PM
as part of a special program at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
Also presenting is Adam Parris, from the Bay Conservation and Development Commission, speaking on “The Rising Tide – Climate Change and San Francisco Bay Wetlands.”
This special program is in conjunction with the new exhibit entitled “Reservoir,” featuring extraordinary contemporary quilts from the private collection of John Walsh III. Walsh is the owner of a water purification business and his recent focus is on commissioning quilts dealing with the subject of water. I had a chance to see the exhibit last Sunday and there are many magnificent large artworks (not all on water).
The event admission is $20 ($15 for museum members) and your dollars will help support this unique textile museum and includes admission to see the exhibit.
The museum is located at 520 S. First Street in San Jose.
