Elizabeth Busch's "Imbalance" is wonderfully complemented by the poem she wrote to accompany it:

My down comforter too hot.
The room temperature too cold.
The earth is burning.
The ether is freezing.
'Progress,' has been the choice.
The earth gives back for paths taken.

The "Give and Take" exhibition was held in conjunction with the 2007 IQSC symposium titled "Traditions and Trajectories: Education and the Quiltmaker". This exhibition featured quilts created by artists who have been instructors, students or both at the Quilt Surface Design Symposium (QSDS). The QSDS is a two-week educational program for non-traditional quilters held each year in Columbus, Ohio. The show celebrated the importance of the teacher and student relationship among quilt artists. The work of a representative group of professional quilt artists was paired with work of their students.
