Featuring the Magical Quilts of Linda Krause
Showing 1/12 through the end of March, 2019
My art features bright and unexpected combinations of color and disparate influences including my love of nature to various cultural manifestations. Many of my quilts reflect my time spent in Australia and embody thematic influences of Australian Aboriginal art as well as the natural surroundings. I work in a non-traditional way and although I basically plan my imagery, much of the time I let the designs dictate what happens and I never know what I will end up with.
Prior to my current work I worked as a graphic artist in the NYC area, and went to become a scientific and technical illustrator at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Alberta, Canada. After that I completed a graduate program in anthropology at Hunter College in NYC and studied the rock art of the Pahranagat Paiutes in south-central Nevada. Eventually I found my way to the Honesdale area, where all the disparate pieces of my life have come together in my artwork.
According to Greek mythology, this island was given the name Anafi after Apollo revealed it's shelter to the Argonauts during a terrible storm by using his bow to shed light upon it.
The Bodhi Tree is honored to now be a part of the The Wayne County Arts Alliance Art-A-Palego! Art-A-Palego is one gallery, 3 locations, who's mission is to provide an island of art to the community through businesses. The WCAA is a not-for-profit organization entirely governed by volunteer members, a society composed of artists and people interested in the beneficial effects of the arts.
