Artist pieces together quilts at Grandpa’s Cellar

From page B6 | October 19, 2012 |

Ronni Harris returns to Grandpa’s Cellar in Camino with her unique “quilted paintings,” through Tuesday, Nov.6.

Harris has been part of the Grandpa’s Cellar fall family since 1985. Her work is original in both concept and design.

A talented painter, Harris said her art form originated out of a love of quilting, “but I could never get all those little pieces to match up.”

She decided to combine both painting and quilting into “quilted paintings” —acrylic paint on fabric, backed with quilt batting then quilted, stitched and embellished with a variety of threads, unique stitching techniques and found objects.

Sometimes Harris uses rubber tires from toy cars to make lief-like tire swings and coffee stir sticks, whittled down, wired together and sewn on for charming picket fences. The combination of all the elements creates a very unusual three-dimensional effect with a bit of whimsy.

“I love to capture the light and the feeling of people’s favorite places,” said Harris of her works of art which are designed to invite people into and through the pieces and be places they want to stay for a while. She has created a special Apple Hill collection for this year.

Harris’ work can be found in galleries from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, to the Oregon coast where she now lives in Astoria.

She will be in the Grandpa’s Cellar orchard on weekends from Saturday, Oct.13 to Tuesday, Nov.6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. She is looking forward to seeing many old friends and their babies and their babies’ babies.

Grandpa’s Cellar is located at 2360 Cable Road in Camino, Apple Hill Ranch No. 17.
