Cindy Loos’ exhibit “Textiles = Art” features work from the last 10 years that shows her growth as an artist, using textile as her medium. Her journey has taken her from making traditional quilts in her early life to art quilts in the past 20 years. In the last decade her style has gone from realistic quilts to her current more abstract style. She creates works that come from life experiences, and tries to capture the feelings and emotions from those experiences. Topics include the plight of the Indiana bat, the repose after a long hike in the woods, an outdoor evening concert; these are some of the pieces that she has documented and translated into textile form.
One of her pieces, “About Melburniums” is an abstraction about the city of Melbourne, Australia, where she visited in 2019. Cindy said, “The city of Melbourne was a meld of sophistication and laid back comfort, and I tried to show that feeling in this quilt with the bright scaffolding grids upon the neutral background. The quilt has an ease about it punctuated with bright city colors.”
Cindy lives in Georgetown, and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University. She spent much of her early years making traditional quilts while nurturing and raising a family. In more recent years she has had more time to devote to her early love, art. She began to blend her love of textiles and her art to create the pieces you see today. She has shown works nationally and internationally in prominent quilt shows and would love to see more galleries showing textile art.
