Janet Darcher is a fiber artist based in southwest Washington State, along the Naselle River. Darcher became serious about art quilting after joining Seattle’s Contemporary QuiltArt Association (CQA) in 2016. “I love the quilting process,” Darcher says. “The feel of the fabric, the colors generated by dying, and the manipulation of a pattern to create something of my own.”
Her piece Greenland at 35,000 Feet is part of the Juried Group Show in the Red Barn.

Greenland at 35,000 Feet, was inspired by a flight over Greenland in late winter 2019. “I flew over Greenland for the first time in daylight and saw the melting ice,” Darcher said. “As beautiful as the patterning appeared, I was struck by the expanse of blue water where white ice should have been. The piece used a photo I took from my window seat. The blue reminded me of a piece of indigo-dyed fabric I had made.”
