Schumacher’s “Cultivated Ground” Wins First Place
“Cultivated Ground,” a quilted collage by Sheri Schumacher, Interior Architecture Program Chair, took First Place in the mixed media category in the 48th Annual Montgomery Art Guild Regions Bank Exhibition this past fall. From more than 260 pieces submitted, sixty-seven were chosen for exhibition with six first place winners for each category that included opaque painting, transparent painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper and mixed media. “Cultivated Ground” is a 30”x 30” handcrafted work that combines modern, vintage and reclaimed fabrics and thread to explore bold and refined variation of color, texture and pattern. Schumacher has studied quilting with the Gee’s Bend quilters and takes her inspiration from ground conditions, topography and graphic design.
