6:45 pm Show and Tell, 7:00 pm meeting
Valerie White cannot remember a time when she did not have a needle in her hand.She has always loved the feel of fabric and the tactile experience afforded by working with all kinds of textures.
Valerie began as a traditional quilter but soon felt this approach limited her from creating more expressive works. She has since submerged herself into Art quilts.
Valerie is drawn to and inspired by African symbols and masks and has developed a stylized approach to include them in her work.
Come along and take a lighthearted journey with Valerie, a retired Art educator from the District of Columbia Public Schools in Washington DC, as she shares her story of family, work and her artistic endeavors. in what has become her life's passion.
