WUGA February Artist in Residence Event

Featured artist: Barbette Houser. A benefit for radio station WUGA. 

Houser distills visual ideas from nature and beautiful hand-made items into simplified, abstract interpretations in quilted pieces that vibrate with light and energy.

She first exhibited her quilts in a solo show at the Meyers Gallery at Athens Academy in 2013. Her most recent group show was “Stitch” at the Classic Center in 2018-2019.  Over the past 20 years, she has gathered together a stunning collection of mid-century Scandinavian furniture and design, vintage textiles and works by Athens-area artists.

The event will be held at her home rain or shine with hors d’oeuvres, lemonade and tea catered by Marti’s at Midday and  wine supplied by Uncommon Gourmet. Didi Dunphy, head of the Lyndon House, will speak briefly about Houser's work at the event.
