Nancy Crow: Drawings: Monoprints and Riffs is a beautifully illustrated catalog showcasing the newest work of renowned artist Nancy Crow. Over the last decade Crow has transformed her quiltmaking by developing a unique monoprinting technique. Monoprinting on cotton fabric, she focuses on drawn lines, layered one upon another, that result in a complex visual tangle. The work in this series simultaneously produces both clarity and depth.

In her Riff and Drawing: Riff series, Crow has continued to explore her "drawing with fabric" approach. In these works Crow improvisationally cuts through layers of highly saturated hand-dyed fabrics, creating crisp forms with slight curves and undulations caused by subtle movements of her arm, which are then stitched together in dynamic compositions.

This catalog includes Crow's descriptions of these innovative techniques as well as candid musings on her personal journey as a driven, passionate artist. In addition, Crow's work is discussed in an essay by Jean Robertson, Chancellor's Professor Emerita of Art History at the Herron School of Art and Design at Indiana University-Purdue University. Also featured is a foreword by David Hornung, professor of art and art history at Adelphi University, New York. The catalog accompanies a 2020 exhibition of Crow's work at the International Quilt Museum, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Nancy Crow, renowned artist, has exhibited her work and taught worldwide. Her quilts are in numerous private and public collections. Named a fellow of the American Craft Council and Master of Medium in Textiles by James Renwick Alliance, Crow has received many awards in recognition of her art during her forty-year career.
