In her abstract and semi-abstract compositions, Pavlik makes use of fabric she has dyed, sometimes over dyed three times over to achieve a richness in color not unlike a painter does when creating her palette. Once she has created a series of shapes in fabric, Pavlik says, "These are moved around and around till I feel I have attained a composition that evokes move- ment, tension and a desire to continue to look at the work." Bowman Friedlander received a degree in art hi tory from Johns Hopkins University. She is a self-taught quilt maker whose ',Pickup Stix" by Leslie Bowman Friedlander. contemporary wall hangings have won numerous awards, including a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Fellowship award in crafts. In her work, Bowman Fried- lander creates one-of- a-kind and limited-edition quilted wall hangings using a variety of cot- ton fabrics that she hand dyes multiple times to build up an intensity of color. The works are pieced together with a sewing machine, but the quilting to finish the piece is done by hand. Her pieces com- bine a richness of color with a strong repetitive geometric pattern often arranged to give a three-dimensional quality to the pattern. The exhibition extends till April 28.
