Valerie Zeman


“Pathways” Showcased at Remsenburg Association Academy’s Summer Art Series 2011

Artist Valerie Zeman presents her textile and fiber art series “Pathways”

Huntington, NY : Valerie Zeman is one of the featured artists represented at the Remsenburg Association Academy of Art – 2011 Summer Art Series. Ms. Zeman invites the community to her Opening Reception on Friday, June 24, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. A Long Island-based artist whose work has been exhibited at different venues on the Island, Ms. Zeman explains, “My color palette reflects my Long Island origins in earth tones of marsh, beach and wood. Juxtaposition of color is one of the true joys of fiber art as canvas. In my designs, I strive for abstract, free-form interpretative expressions of large and small themes, such as “survival” or “family.” Other times, I find that the textile itself and the creative process yield their own results, much like sculpting.”

Ms. Zeman works with textiles and mixed media to produce extraordinarily complex abstract expressionist, multi-layered, fiber art that is technically and visually stunning. She is active in East End art and non-profit organizations, and is a member of the East End Arts Council.

The show runs from June 24th - July 10th, Friday, Saturday, Sunday of each weekend, from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m., during which times Ms. Zeman will be happy to welcome visitors and discuss her work.

The Remsenburg Academy is located at 126 South Country Road, Remsenburg. Known as one of the oldest private academies on Long Island, the Remsenburg Academy building dates to the time of the Civil War and serves as a truly lovely venue for art exhibits, such as the Summer Art Series.

M. Joan Lintault



Joan Lintault, The Other Messengers, 1994, 89.5” h x 83” w. Collection of Shelburne Museum

View Gallery Quilts collected and made by M. Joan Lintault, one of the pioneering art quilt makers of the 20th century, May 15 – October 30 at the Shelburne Museum, 6000 Shelburne Road, Shelburne, Vermont.

Joan Lintault is an internationally renowned quilter who has been exhibiting her work since 1965 and is represented in the collections of Illinois State Museum, the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska and numerous public and private collections.
Joan uses a variety of techniques to achieve her visual effect but never relies on commercially patterned fabric, preferring to dye/screen print/paint her own canvas  and then add quilting, appliqué and embroidery to create movement and depth. The Other Messengers,  dating from 1995, is a tribute to fall—her favorite season. The leaves are joined with insects to create positive and negative spaces. The subconscious inspiration for this innovative design was born over thirty years earlier, when Joan made a sketch for an art class featuring the same elements.

The Other Messengers has been exhibited over a dozen times in the United States, France, Austria and Tokyo.
The Museum recently acquired The Other Messengers along with a group of quilts from the 19th and 20th centuries from America and India that represent a lifetime of collecting and influenced her work.

Learn the color principles of Bauhaus Masters including Albers, Klee and Itten.  This color workshop will be one of personal and creative discovery rather than just theory.  This 6-part hands-on workshop will explore a series of exercises using screen printed colored papers and collage techniques.  Participants will learn the dynamics and interaction of colors and how to see color with a different awareness. For fiber artists and color lovers – no prior experience necessary.  Any skill level, love of color is the requirement.  How to use color is the practical application. Materials list upon request.
