Exhibit Overview

The members of the Pointless Sisters live within the incredibly beautiful and diverse region of forests, agricultural, and urban lands in Sonoma and Lake counties. For this exhibit, the group challenged themselves to portray the threats our population and environment face from the consequences of fire, flood, droughts, and urban development including loss of species habitat. Their mission for this exhibit is to bring environmental awareness through art to the community using a variety of surface design techniques including mixed media, photography, stitching, and painting.

About the Artists

"Pacific Tree Frog" by Judy Mathieson

Since 2002, the 40+ members of the Pointless Sisters Art Quilt Group of Sonoma County have immersed themselves in fabric and thread in surface design and unusual techniques. They challenge each other to produce uncommon works with various common themes using paints and dyes, surface design, and stitching on fabrics from cottons and silks to brocades. The Pointless Sisters have contributed artworks and raised money to benefit local non-profits. The group is committed to bringing art quilting to the community.
