Nancy Bergman: Somewhere in the Sky

During the day, we look at the beautiful sky and see its changes wondering what's out there.

The circle is found everywhere in nature and dominates our lives.  When we view the sky, we see the circles of the moon, sun, planets, and stars.  Ancient cultures used the circle to note the way that time and the seasons passed in a cyclical way.  This selection of art quilts symbolizes the sky and its mysteries during a twenty four hour day.



Dabbling in a number of art forms from weaving to painting, Nancy found that creating works using fabric was the most satisfying for her.  After retiring as an educator, she adopted art quilting as her preferred method for self-expression.

Using photographs or drawings as a source of inspiration, Bergman has created a number of pictorial and landscape quilts.  It is important to her that each quilt tells a story and has an emotional impact on the viewer.
