Bandoneon by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry

Bandoneon by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry

Artist Statement: At the opening reception, of one of my shows, music was provided by Bertram Levy, a bandoneon player. My husband Ron Gentry took a picture that perfectly captured the joy of this musician as he played.

Materials & Techniques: I created the composition for this quilt to compliment the image of the musician. The shadow of a couple dancing the tango, suggests that they may be somewhere else in the same room. The figure of the musician and his chair were enlarged and laser printed on fabric. All of the other fabrics in the quilt are from the various collections of fabric that I have designed for Benartex.

Dimensions: 30 x 30
