What We Do Know (c) 2006, has been accepted into the juried show of Art Quilts XI, Stages, Cycles and Fits, curated by Diane Howell. This 24" x 36" piece will exhibit at the Chandler Center of the Arts from October 20th to December 30th.

My Artist Statement: Since 1993, nearly 400 young girls and women have been brutally murdered or ended up missing in the border town of Ciudad, Juarez. No one is able to agree to the exact body count or causes of the missing and dead. Where rumors outnumber facts, this piece details a little of what we do know, in hopes we may never forget these mothers, daughters, sisters. 'Ni una mas - not one more.

Curator Thelma Smith, has also included this piece as one of the new works added to her exhibit she is taking to France September, 2006, (see previous post on the European version of Changing the World One Thread at a Time), to the Val d'Argent Expo, located in the center of Ste Marine aux Mines, Haut-Rhin, France.
