ArtWalk Artist Talk: Saturday, February 8, 11 am
For Wahl, quilt making is the happy conjunction between math and art, of rules and creativity, using the tools of color and pattern. But it wasn’t until she was working on a small wall-hanging and the pieces stuck to a piece of flannel and sunlight illuminated from behind them, that she began to play with the top layers of quilts being stretched over light boxes to read similar to a stained glass window. This show consists of quilted light boxes that do just that, adding light as the third tool of creation.
Wahl is a West Hartford-based artist with a BFA in Fine Art Photography from Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington D.C. She has exhibited in Hartford at the TheaterWorks Gallery and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in D.C.
