The Quilt of Elizabeth Brim a metal quilt made from old metal tins by central Ohio artist Concha Castaneda.

This spring the quilt was part of an art show by the VSA, Ohio’s state organization on arts and disability, where it won 3rd prize in the 5th Annual A Day of Arts for All show.  The quilt then went on a tour of Ohio with the 18th annual Accessible Expressions Ohio Exhibit and Tour. In April it was shown in Columbus at The Ohio State University at Nisonger Center. It will go to an undisclosed patron after the tour.

Music and art is a continuous process for Concha. “There  is so much art and music to do in so little time.”  Also there is so many forms that it would be a shame to just dedicate myself to one.  Concha expresses her art via Silversmithing, Stone Cutting, Painting, Ceramics, and Drumming and various other musical instruments. She is seeking sponsors for the coming year and hopes to return to live in the rich cultural environment of Columbus where her art can flourish.

Her piece the Quilt Of Elizabeth Brim and other art from the VSA 2013 Exhibition and Ohio Tour,  will be shown at The Licking County Library 2nd floor lounge area, and can be viewed during the month of August. There will be a reception for the artist in the Library in room B on August 6th at 6pm.

Concha Castaneda can be contacted via her website.
