HEADWATERS must certainly be one of the most spectacular works of quilt art you have ever seen! This 34″ x 24″ gorgeous quilt art was created specifically for Alabama Rivers Alliance with the generous cooperation of Black Warrior Riverkeeper.
Not only beautiful and evocative, Murray’s quilt is likely paying tribute to her good friend Beth Maynor Young who published a wonderful book by the same name.
Retail value for this piece is $1,800.00
ABOUT THE ARTIST
“Mountains and sky, rocks, wood and water mingle to create an intriguing, inspirational resource. I see and hear and taste the land that surrounds me. To pull out the abstracted memories of place and time and piece them into rhythms that evoke a response is my primary goal. Colors and natural images are a universal language and the conversations I have with these works are a constant, exhilarating challenge.” ~ Murray Johnston
