May Program Presentation: Donna Barnitz

Donna Barnitz had been dyeing and painting one of a kind fabrics for 15 years.  She has pursued a variety of fabric altering techniques including batik, silk screening, and embellishing cotton, rayon and silk.  She also produces a limited number of indigo and rust infused cloth.
This past year Donna was Artist-in-Residence at Petrified Forest National Park where she concentrated on rust dyeing fabrics that imitate the look of petrified logs.  In addition to fabric dyeing she enjoys making vivid art quilts from her own fabrics.  Her quilt "My Sister's Truck" was recently selected for exhibition in the New Mexico Capitol Rotunda.

Donna's presentation at our May membership meeting will focus on her Artist-in-Residence as well as the process she used of dyeing fabric with rust.

The meeting is held at Destiny Center Church on Northern Blvd. and will begin at 6:30 PM. Admission is free and you need not be a member to attend the program.
