We felt incredibly lucky to have local artist Anna Webb speak to us on Saturday about her mosaic artwork. Her talk was very inspiring! We learned about her public artwork around Boise, her artistic process, and where she finds inspiration for her work. There were many correlations with modern quilting: the desire to make something tangible, pushing boundaries, inspiration based on architecture, landscapes, and shapes, as well as embracing the imperfections that celebrate the human touch in art. I think we all left that day invigorated. Anna also brought a few pieces of her work for us to look at and touch. Check out the pictures below.

If you want to see her work in person, check out these locations around Boise.

  • 9th and River streets, just west of the Boise Downtown Library
  • Traffic circle at Crescent Rim Dr. and Eastover Terrace near the Boise Depot
  • The mosaics incorporated in the new Cancer Survivors Pavilion in Julia Davis Park

During Show and Share we also got to see some great work by our members as well!
