Earth Stories is a SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Association) Exhibition. The artists were chosen through a call for consideration process. Artists were asked to submit 3 pieces that were representative of the style for the piece we would be creating for Earth Stories if we were to be chosen. The artists were also asked to present a proposal identifying a person or project that enhances the planet, makes a significant difference in restoring and/or protecting the environment, increasing sustainability or otherwise improving the earth we occupy.
For my story, I wanted to explore the imagery of wind farms. I drive through the wind farm at Judith Gap, Montana every time I visit family in Central Montana. I have long been captivated by the regal, yet alien nature of the gigantic wind turbines juxtaposed against the backdrop of four beautiful mountain ranges in the sparsely populated agricultural valley south of Judith Gap.
