"Art on Paper" exhibition sponsored by the Kelekian Art Gallery, in Beirut, Lebanon will be at the Sharjah Art Museum during December 2005.

Each piece in the exhibition conforms to the tiny size of 10cm x 12.5cm or 3.9"x4.9". The six works of art include "Design Works" by Rosemary Claus-Gray of Doniphan, MO, "Starburst" Deborah Gregory of Bellevue, WA, "Rocks and Weeds #2" by Joanie San Chirico of Toms River, NJ, "Three Bars" by Virginal A.

"Techno Jam Version 1.4: Mixed Berry Jelly"
3.9"x4.9" Carolyn Lee Vehslage 2004 NFS

Materials: cottons, paper, beads, recycled computer components, found objects.

Techniques: foundation paper piecing, machine quilting, embellishment.

Statement: The "Techno Jam" series takes a light-hearted look at being 'certifiably crazy'. V1.4: Mixed Berry Jelly is based on the Victorian crazy quilt design. The theme is about computers and electronics getting 'jammed up' and how marmalades, jellies, and preserves can be sticky and messy.

This tiny quilt block has a few 'computer bugs' buzzing around to pollinate the flowers of the fruit trees. Now that mankind can 'grow' computer chips in the lab, where does nature end and technology begin?
