Road 2017 Special Exhibit: Altar Offerings

Dias De Los Muertos Or Day of the Dead which occurs October 31st to November 2nd each year. This multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Building altars helps celebrate these lives. Jane had the opportunity of taking an altar building class in Houston, Texas.  Being a fiber artist, she decided to design her altar in fabric. Later, when Jane was teaching her annual August retreat, she had her students create quilts for this exhibit. Each quilt in the exhibit had to incorporate elements found in altar building which include motifs that symbolize earth, wind, fire, light and smell. In addition, the favorite food, personal items and activities, religious items and photos of the deceased loved one were also added. Of the quilts in the exhibit, Jane said, “I am very proud of how each person expressed their loved ones. And many said it help them work through their passing. They turned their grief into a creative energy.” After Road to California, Jane hopes the exhibit will be shown at future quilt shows in 2017. Jane Tenorio-Coscarelli is a renowned author, artist and quilter and is the creator of 1/4 Inch Publishing. For the past 20 years, she has successfully designed and produced her product line of books, patterns, fabrics and notions. To learn more about Jane, please visit her website.
