About Me:
Jacque Davis creates art from her home studio in Freeburg, Illinois. With a history in the fiber arts beginning in the late 80’s when she learned traditional quilting, followed by many years weaving fine laces using silk and linen. Her longtime love of cloth and color has pushed her forward where she has worked the past 7 years creating colorful art for the wall using cloth, paint and stitch.

She dyes much of the cloth she uses and uses a wide array of surface embellishments to enhance her work. She teaches many of her techniques to students in her home studio.

Her work has traveled to many exhibits, won numerous awards, and has been purchased for private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

Jacque,

My name is Nora Doyle, the Physical Education Coordinator at America SCORES St. Louis.

We’re hosting an art show and fundraiser on March 20, 2010, and would like for you to submit one or more pieces to our event. I’ve included some information below. Please contact me if you have any questions about the project. Thanks in advance!

--Nora

The Inspired Art Project enlists local artists to create and submit original works, inspired by original poetry written by students participating in America SCORES St. Louis. Started by another SCORES affiliate in the Bay Area, the Inspired Art Project is an exciting national model for community collaboration.

On, March 20, 2010, the selected artwork will be collected and displayed at our annual Inspired Art Show. Proceeds from the event will support America SCORES St. Louis, a unique, comprehensive, youth development program which uses the tools of poetry, soccer, creative expression and service-learning to equip and inspire urban youth to lead healthy lifestyles, become engaged students, and grow into leaders for their schools and communities.

Interested artists need to register ASAP in order to submit their work to the event. Artists may choose to collect 25% of the final auction price for their work, or can donate all or a portion of the commission back to America SCORES St. Louis. Other artist benefits include:

• Free admission to the event (includes two complimentary drinks)
• Free guest tickets (up to 3) to the event
• Listing on our event website, www.inspiredartstlouis.org
• Listing in our event program

I don't know if you received my e-mail but i'm sorry about your friend. I was asking about your fiber background and if your work is in a gallery?
I hope i can visit with you in the future.
Best,
David

Are you a member of the St. Louis Weaver's Guild? Your sense of color is exceptional. My ex-mother-in-law travelled the country seeking out hundreds of unique plants/organic dyes and documenting them for the ability to produce exciting colors.

David.

Artist Statement


Every person’s mind builds images while asleep or day
dreaming. This language helps us to process and
communicate our thoughts and feelings. Even as our
dreams are uniquely ours, they have a thread of the
everyday world in them. It is this thread that allows
us to recognize the common language spoken in dreams.

Cloth, paint, and thread provide the perfect tools to
capture the evocative nature of the dream world. Cloth,
soft and familiar to us all, provides the foundation. Thread connects the layers and lies visible on the surface, and paint can highlight or shadow an image adding another layer of interest.

My art work is a celebration of our connection to one another. When the separateness created by culture, society, and life disappears for a time, together we can rest in a quiet familiar place.
