J.R. Campbell & Susan Taber Avila visit Lee Quen Studios - Cultural Tech-Fusion Fabrics

Cultural Tech-Fusion Fabrics

 
 
YToday J.R. Campbell, Director and Professor of the Fashion School at Kent State,  and Susan Taber Avila, artist and professor at The University of California Davis , visited the studios of Colleen Quen and Rick Lee.

J.R. Campbell's digital textile department printed the silks for the Surface and Shape collaborative project Colleen, Rick and I are working on. He was in town to see a show at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and he had an hour window of time that matched Colleen's  window of time to meet. I almost was not able to make the meeting but am so glad that I did! It was an extra bonus to meet Susan.
