Georgia Theatre Quilt Block from Athens Artist Ali Sabin
I wanted to share one of the latest entries for the Georgia Theatre art quilt.
Ali Sabin of Athens has created this hand-pulled marquee print for us.
Ali started making block prints about two years ago, due to her interest in traditional art techniques. She begins by designing the image, then carving the block before hand-pulling each piece.
Her "location" prints mimic mid-century tourism designs, thanks to, Ali says, her obsession with vintage advertising and propaganda.
Ali sells her work at local markets in and around Athens, and online.
See more of her designs at www.IPullPrints.com and at www.IPullPrints.etsy.com
Thanks for your contribution Ali!
