A review of Julie John Upshaw’s installation titled “Insecurity” at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles can be found on Metroactive – The Arts in San Jose.
An excerpt reads: “BY NOW, the ritual of security clearance at the airport has become second nature. The traveler passes through an electronic portal to the limbo of the departure lounge. In an edgy installation called Insecurity at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, Julie John Upshaw ups the anxiety level of that common experience.”

A good review of 3 shows at the Lowell Quilt Festival appeared in the Boston Globe on August 3, 2006. The article, titled Stitches In Time by Cate McQuaid, contains many interesting comments about quilts as art and is a recommended read.
Ms McQuaid comments quite appropriately:
“The two juried art quilt shows at the American Textile History Museum and the Whistler House Museum of Art draw from a pool that probably includes both amateurs and professionals. The results, as is often the case with juried art exhibitions, are wildly variable.”
