Cathy Erickson to Speak at August Meeting

Fiber Artist, Cathy Erickson made her first quilt in 1996 while waiting for her daughter during dance class. In 2000, Cathy began taking art classes in drawing and graphic design at the local community college. Starting in 2002 Cathy and Margaret Chula created a series of quilts and poetry inspired by the stories and photos of Japanese Americans in internment camps in the 1940’s. That work continues to this day. After 2015 Cathy started to make modern quilts and began her series “Baltimore Goes Modern.  The quilts in this series use blocks from antique Baltimore Album Quilts as inspiration for modern quilts.
