I bought this lovely collage at 500X Gallery. Created by then-Dallas artist, writer, critic ( for Dallas Arts Revue on paper ) and performer Glenna Park, who later moved to San Antonio.

It says, from upper left to right, top to bottom, "warm friendship / contract / to be side by side / any various contrivance for connecting parts" and at the bottom, its title, the Greenberg Wedding Quilt / "warm friendship" Glenna Parks  1980.

It is, in a simple unvarnished blond wood frame, 11 inches square. When I told her I'd bought this one, she gave me two other pieces. I love the threads woven into the design and let loose outside it, the colors and interlocking design. It's precious in the best sense of the word.
