|A Texas Experience at QuiltFest in Austin|
The theme A Texas Experience draws on each artist’s reflection on being a resident of the Lone Star State. Inspiration was taken from the diverse topographic and cultural landscape; the past, present and future of the State; the emotional impact of being a Texan; and the unique people, events, scenery, etc. that is so much a part of the Texas mystique.
You can download our trunk show flyer here. A CD of all the quilts in the collection is also available along with a promotional one-sheet that can be given to curators and prospective venues. If you have a suggestion of a venue where the trunk show can be displayed or are interested in helping complete exhibit proposals, please contact Kim Buchmann at 512-736-2971 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
