We are honored to present the artwork of Dan Rickards for our 2014 show poster, "It Takes a Village". As an owner of the Clearwater Gallery in Sisters, and a long time friend of the Quilt Show, Dan embraced the theme "It Takes a Village", bringing to life the many aspects of our community that transform the town during Quilt Show week.

Dan has a special focus on landscape and wildlife paintings. Most often he uses acrylics and paints with a fine realistic style, "loose, with a small brush, " with stunning detail in the area of focus. His love and concern for the environment is evident in every work he completes. Last year, Dan released the first of his National Park series, "Unfolding Light, Yosemite National Park". 

Official Quilt Show merchandise featuring Dan's artwork is available at the Stitchin' Post.
