Quilt Exhibit in Glass Showcase

                            Kai Houston-Guy, a native Californian, was bitten by the quilting bug almost 15 years ago.  She took up quilting in an effort to quit  smoking and it became an all consuming passion.  Since then she has left traditional quilts behind and taken up the art quilt.

Her current work emphasizes color and form.  She alters commercial fabric that she paints, stamps, or dyes and then cuts into smaller units.  The units are then reassembled into quilts that reflect the current season in her life---a precarious balance on the edge of an almost empty nest, middle age and abstract representations of nature and human form.

Lena LeMay, native Texan, has been drawing and painting most of her life.  Most of her family could draw, and she did not realize this was a specail talent until she started school and noticed that most children could not.  Lena has never been formally trained, and yet her paintings are in everyway masterfully executed.  She has recently moved to the Houston area to be close to family in her "golden years". 

Lena's work, "Seasons of Inspiration" may be viewed during the month of February at the Barbara Bush Branch Library.
