REE NANCARROW makes wall quilts using many of her own fabrics, which are dyed, painted and/or silkscreened.  Elaborate quilting adds a rich and textural surface.  Living near Denali Park for 50 years, having been Artist in Residence in Denali National Park in 2006, and working with scientists in the In Time of Change program inform her work.  She has been accepted and won awards in many national quilt shows, and has had five solo shows.  Major commissions include a 4-panel quilt for U.S. Army, Fort Wainwright Bassett Hospital in Fairbanks, Alaska, and a 4-panel quilt for Eielson Visitors Center in Denali National Park.  In 2012 she received an Interior Alaska Mayor's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts.
