I'd like to share this article that appears in the Fall 2019 issue of B'nai B'rith Magazine.  It's about a project I did between September 2017 and October 2018 (corresponding on the Jewish calendar to 5778) entitled "Seeing Torah." 
 Briefly, over the course of one year, each week I read one portion of the Torah (Old Testament), studied relevances commentaries, and created a body of 54 quilted visual responses to what I read and studied.  More information is in the article which can be found at  https://www.bnaibrith.org/seeing-torah.html

News from Lee Sproull

I will exhibit two quilts in the show, Making One’s Mark, at the MCLA Downtown Gallery, North Adams MA from August 29 to September 21, 2019.  
From the curator’s description of the show:
Mark making describes the different lines, dots, marks, patterns, and textures we create in an artwork. it can be loose and gestural or controlled and neat. It can apply to any material used on any surface: paint on canvas, ink or pencil on paper, a scratched mark on plaster, clay or metal, a digital paint tool on a screen, the pattern in a weaving, even a sound can be a form of mark making. Artists use gesture to express their feelings and emotions in response to something seen or something felt - or gestural qualities can be used to create a purely abstract composition.
