During the months of February-March the Smith Studio and Gallery, in Geneseo, is sponsoring an exhibition of quilt artwork by Meg Prange. Meg was raised on a sheep and cattle farm in Illinois. She had a creative mother who taught her how to really see things. Meg’s fascination with the patterns, textures, and colors of fabric led her to try her first pictorial hand-sewn wall hanging using the blind stitch her mother had shown her. More sewn images followed as she developed her distinctive quirky colorful style.
Since 2000, Meg has been dedicating her work time to sharing her creative experiments. She loves the life. To those who know Meg her choice of occupation as an artist, who creates hand appliqued fabric pictures, seems uncharacteristically sedentary. To her it is an exciting adventure and a natural expression of who she is. Meg now lives on a small farm outside the petite community of Russell in south-central Iowa.
