Artist's works added to museum collection

Visions Art Museum in San Diego will feature the work of Sisters quilt and fiber artist Jean Wells.

Wells' collection of quilts will appear in an exhibit, "Anatomy of Nature," April 21-July 2, before the quilts are added to the museum's permanent collection.

Visions Art Museum: Contemporary Quilts + Textiles is celebrating 10 years at Liberty Station and marking the occasion with six new additions to the museum's permanent collection.

"I'm honored to have my quilts at Visions. These quilts represent so much of life in Central Oregon and what inspires me through geography, color and nature," said Wells. "At this time in my career, I am deeply moved to have my work recognized in such a manner."

Jean Wells is an artist, author, instructor, and owner of Stitchin' Post in Sisters. She is the founder of the landmark Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.

Her quilt work has been juried into the International Quilt Festival in Houston, the Pacific West Quilt Fest, Mancuso shows in San Francisco and reside in private collections. Her commissioned quilts live at FivePine Conference Center, Sisters Shibui Spa, Sisters City Hall, and Gateway Canyons, Colorado. She has taught color theory and quilting around the world, sharing her books and lectures with thousands of

people.

Wells founded the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in 1975. The show grew to become the largest outdoor quilt show in the world, held on the second Saturday of July. The 42nd annual event is set for July 8, and SOQS Sunday on July 9.
