Nimitznequi - Te Amo - I Love You

One language is not enough

Art Quilts Exhibit by fiber artist Marisela Rumberg

“How much does someone’s life change after finding love?  Mine changed - A LOT.
Love took me to a new country with a new language, a new culture and a new religion. As I meet the challenges of adapting to my new home, in art I have found a language that helps keep me connected to my ancestors and share my pride in my heritage.  From Mayan legends to folksy sayings to Proverbs - there is always history, stories, romance, or treasured traditions inspiring my quilts.”

Glen Echo is an amazing and historic arts and cultural center in Montgomery County, Maryland. It dates from the 1890s!  I'm very excited to tell you they have selected some of my art quilt pieces to include in their new exhibit, "Focus on Fiber."  I am so honored to be exhibited with such fabulous fiber artists. You are all invited to join me at the Opening Reception on Saturday, March 11, from 6pm-9pm. But if you cannot make the Opening Reception don’t worry, the exhibit runs through April 1.  I am also thrilled to tell you that not only did they include me in their show, but they have also asked me to be one of their instructors!  Click here to sign up for my upcoming classes there.
