Ressler Art Quilts Topic of May’s Guild Discussion

POTTSTOWN PA – Artist Martha Ressler, who moved from painting with brushes to painting with cloth in producing more than 750 art quilts (one of which appears at top) during the past 11 years, will be the featured speaker Tuesday (May 18, 2021) at 7 p.m. during the monthly virtual presentation of the Pottstown Area Artists Guild.

Registration for its discussion on Zoom is free, open to the public, and now available here.

“My stitched collages, which sometimes include found objects and papers along with fabrics, often echo my feeling that, here is this place, where I saw, breathed and absorbed the atmosphere. Here are some artifacts from other people who share my time on earth,” the artist observes.

Although Ressler says her passion for art started late in life, she says she was “a painter first. Though painting is a more fluid media, I aspire to achieve equal, or more, depth and richness with the fiber arts. My passion for the colors and textures of fabrics, and bringing fragments of them together into award-winning art, is a thread that goes back many years.”

Those who register will receive a return e-mail containing a Zoom for her talk. Information about the Pottstown Area Artists Guild and its other events is available on its website.
