August Zoom Lecture - Teresa Duryea Wong - Third Floor Quilts


We're excited to announce Teresa Duryea Wong of Third Floor Quilts will be joining us for our August 20th meeting.  Teresa began her career as a journalist, and now uses her writing and communication skills to share her quilt knowledge.  From this month's talk, you'll walk away with memorable concepts for how to create stunning minimalism in quilts. The art of Frank Stella, Sol Lewit and Agnes Martin, plus architects Maya Lin and Japan's Tadao Ando, will inspire and inform the discussion on how to transfer their best concepts into both quilt design and the quilted line. Two quilters who exude the discipline and focus required to achieve true minimalism will be featured. One with an Eastern aesthetic, Yoshiko Jinzenji, and one with Western roots, Carson Converse. Teresa will explain how each of these artists and architects employ the act of reduction, with color, scale, shape, and line to achieve sublime minimalism.

This lecture is presented in conjunction with the Victoria MQG and Vancouver MQG.  Guild members will receive a Zoom link at no charge; Guest tickets available at
