Moore is the first and only women’s visual arts college in the U. S. so it is fitting that MAAG is collaborating with the College on this exhibition, including the work of Jacquelyn Daley, Emilie Didyoung, Lydia Knopp, Lydia Nobles, Sabrina Salgado, Nicole Melnicky, Ava Mallett, Alexandra Mosoeanu, Mary Boran, Maryann Worrell and Caitlin Tschanz. The artists’ work will investigate their relationships to gender and identity. Some may make more traditional choices and some may challenge conventional norms while others may choose to address their intersecting identities. The Gender Weave Project, also featuring the work of invited guest professional artists such Carol Loeffler, Arleen Olshan, Kathryn Pannepacker, Kathy Robinson, Heather Ujiie, Carol Wisker, and Maryann Worrell, will examine “social norms” in its efforts to overcome prejudice and misconceptions and increase public awareness.

The Mt. Airy Art Garage was Arleen’s brain child. Initially her goal was create a space where artists could collaborate—have studios, a gallery, classroom and performance space to build community. With the tremendous partnership of her wife Linda Slodki and the support of the Northwest Community, this dream, launched in 2009, has come to fruition. 

Arleen is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, with a BFA in Painting from the University of Arts (then the Philadelphia College of Art). She is also a master in handcrafted leather accessories, which she has worked in for over 50 years.

KPannepackerKathryn Pannepacker

Kathryn Pannepacker is a textile/visual artist living in Philadelphia, PA. She graduated from Penn State University with a major in English and a minor in art. Afterwards, she apprenticed with 3rd generation French tapestry weaver, Jean Pierre Larochette and his partner, Yael Lurie, a painter and designer for tapestry. Kathryn then went to Aubusson, France to continue weaving as an artist-in-resident. She also had the opportunity to be an artist-in-resident in Hachioji, Japan, through the Japan Foundation.

Though still weaving pictorial tapestry, she also weaves with unusual materials. Through the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia, Kathryn painted a 7′ x 500 ft. wide mural called Wall of Rugs: the global language of textiles at Girard and Belmont Avenues featuring the textiles of 42 countries. Part 2 was completed at Broad and Lehigh Streets. Her most recent painted-to-look-like-knitting & crochet-mural, Nana Blankets, can be seen in North Philly.

Kathryn exhibits locally, nationally and internationally, and has work in private and public collections. In the summers of 2010 & 2013, she was in Canada doing an outdoor textile installation for the international textile arts event at Moon Rain Center. She is committed to the transformative power of art in people’s lives and the sustainability of such transformation by involving the community.

  • Building community, camaraderie, support, friendship, snacking, laughing, talking and enjoying fellow quilters’ company.
  • And, of course, show and tell!

Detail of “A Place To Go” by Karoline Wallace

Hosted by MAAG Quilter Karoline Wallace, we’ve got a new time and day, so mark your calendars for Saturday, Jan. 10 from 1-5 pm. You’ll find us at 11 West Mt. Airy Ave. $15 Admission/$10 for MAAG members. What a great way to start 2015. Come join us! Questions? Contact info@mtairyartgarage.org or call 215.242.5074. Getting to know Karoline Wallace, your host! Since discovering quilt making 16 years ago, I have experienced a very powerful creative outlet in fiber, specifically in quilt making. Originally from Brooklyn, New York I have been greatly influenced by living in Paris and in West Africa. European and African aesthetics are a part of my experience and I try to incorporate that into my work. While I do not have a formal art education, at the University of Pennsylvania I have received a BA in Art History and a Masters in Folklore and Foodways. I am a humanities person at heart, but I also hold a Masters in Computing and Information Technology from Penn’s School of Engineering. I make original quilts and I am proud to be the webmaster and active member of the Heartstring Quilters Guild in Bala Cynwyd, PA, and a member of the American Quilters’ Society and the International Quilt Association. My work has been published in Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine, and shown in the International Quilt Festival in Houston and the Mt. Airy Art Garage in Philadelphia.

New York Beauty Quilt Technique Class | Sarah Bond

2 Sessions — Saturdays, October 25 & November 22, 2014

2 pm — 6 pm

Class fee $65

bond157_010ProvenceBeautyThis is a workshop style class designed for advanced beginners and beyond. This is a great technique for creating those perfect points every time. We’ll start the class with a basic, simple New York Beauty block and we’ll walk you through the basics of paper piecing. We’ll continue on to variations including flying geese, multiple sets of points and triangles, and long points with narrow outlines. You can try all the variations or just stick with the ones you like. We’ll provide new pattern sets at each class. During the last class, we’ll experiment with placement of the blocks so you can see how the different sets and arrangements of the blocks can create the contemporary or traditional quilt that is perfect for you.

It is not necessary to have all your fabric for the first class. You can add in fabrics as you go as the colors and textures start to develop together in your quilt.
