Cynthia Herron: By Land and by Sea


April 4th, 2023 - April 30th, 2023

This work represents Cynthia’s record of comfort and calm over the last two years during 2020-2022, when life presented challenges and confusion.  She took comfort in two things:  hand stitching and sketching along the Oregon coast. 

She created her own designs with cotton fabric, whether a quilt, wall hanging or small collage.  She would then sit for hours with sewing machine, needles and thread focusing on the present moment, on color and texture, leaving behind the sadness of the loss of her partner, home and routine.
