Thank you from Rubia!

Tashakor Means Thank You

Much appreciation to Mayor Sam Adams, Pollyanne Birge, and Jo Grishman for organizing the Portland, Oregon exhibition of Women Helping Women, Stitch by Stitch.

Women’s Caucus for Art–Rubia Collaborative Quilt Update

This past winter and spring Rubia and the Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA), a national organization for the promotion of women and art, created a collaborative art quilt using Rubia-inspired stitching and imagery. The quilt, Women Helping Women, Stitch by Stitch, presented a unique opportunity for women to connect through their artwork, supporting cross-cultural communication. Since its opening in May, the quilt has been traveling around the US raising awareness for Rubia’s mission and work. November 6th at City Hall in Portland Oregon was the 5th opening for the WCA-Rubia collaborative quilt. The quilt was on display during November in the City Hall. The next showing will be March 2-April 2, 2009 at the Florissant Valley Art Gallery in St. Louis, MO. Accompanying the quilt is a juried exhibition of WCA St. Louis and Philadelphia members entitled, Women and the Environment. To follow the quilt’s tour or to inquire about sponsoring an exhibit please visit or call 603-397-3438.
