Evolutions: Third Biennial Quilt Challenge @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
Sep 24 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Evolutions: Third Biennial Quilt Challenge @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum | Golden | Colorado | United States

Evolutions: Third Biennial Juried Quilt Challenge also American Antiques from the Strouse Collection  Where have you been? Where are you now? Where are you going? The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum challenged quilters and fiber artists to consider these questions and create a quilt inspired by the theme “Evolutions”.  The 25 pieces selected by juror Dr. Sandra Sider demonstrate just how many ways the idea can be expressed. Candace Weiss’s large-scale appliqued crab addresses the theme obliquely, employing a traditional technique to depict an unusual subject.Several artists interpreted the exhibition theme through physical manifestations of shifting surfaces, including overlaid transitions, rhythmic swaths of color, floating stars, and interrupted edges. Others incorporated repurposed materials into their quilts, literally allowing them to “evolve. Themes of evolution, change, and transition also are represented by depictions of biological structures, canyons and fossils, dream images, and historical events. We are also faced with the cheetah of Barbara Yates Beasley, an instance of evolutionary perfection.

Also: American antique quilts from 1850 through 1935 are featured in the recently acquired Strouse collection. This exhibit runs through October 28, 2014.  Museum hours are Monday – Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm and Sundays 11:00 am – 4:00 pm 

The remaining 2014 SCFD free days at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum are: July 29 & October 28.

Golden Earth Days Workshop – Joe McCabe @ Jefferson Unitarian Church
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Golden Earth Days Workshop - Joe McCabe @ Jefferson Unitarian Church | Golden | Colorado | United States

Golden Earth Days and Colorado Renewable Energy Society – Jeffco Chapter presents: Joe McCabe: California’s Rule 21 impact on photovoltaics nationwide

There will be beverages and snacks provided. Attendees will also have the chance to network with professionals.  There is no cost for this event, but donations are accepted. Become a fan of Golden Earth Days at https://www.facebook.com/GoldenEarthDays/events.

This presentation highlights the importance of the California Public Utility Commission proposed changes to Rule 21 and how it relates to the past and future of PV in the US. There is a paradigm shift in how utilities in California now view distributed generation from photovoltaics.

Previously, inverters were to drop off the grid if there were any problems. Now, because PV is becoming a larger percentage of system-wide generation, inverters are being encouraged to stay on the grid. This presentation will highlight the new Rule 21 advanced functionality, the value of these functions to different stakeholders, the expected roll out and what these changes mean to the solar industry. California’s new energy storage mandate will be also be discussed, along with predictions on the future of solar with smart grid.

Joe is a consultant energy engineer and business development expert who has worked with SRA International, Ascent Solar, the California Energy Commission, the Center for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology. He is a member of the American Solar Energy Society and a Life Member for CRES.
