The Plans Have Changed

An earth shattering letter arrived in my mailbox a week ago today.  Earth shattering might be an exaggeration, but when you've worked as long and hard as Elizabeth Adams-Marks and I have on organizing our international fibers show, you would understand.  Over a year's worth of work was challenged by a few simple words…"due to reorganization efforts at Jacoby Arts Center, we will be unable to host your show.  Sorry for the inconvenience."

We've had one hell of a roller coaster ride this week. As Rose says to Esther in "Meet Me in St. Louis": "The plans have changed".

So Jacoby is OUT and a new venue is IN.  And what a venue!  Unfortunately I don't have any decent pictures of the gallery.  Will try to shoot some as soon as school resumes--SIUE is on spring break now.  You can see a couple of pics at the From the Inside Out blog.  

The faculty and exhibition committee at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville where both Elizabeth and I got our degrees has voted to forego their annual faculty exhibition and allow our show to be installed in the August/September slot.  THANK YOU SIUE!

So we have almost the same dates we had originally, and thank goodness, Fabienne's workshop will go on as planned and all participants will get a chance to see the show and hear the artist talk on September 18.

We are still working out some of the details since this JUST happened yesterday.  We're not sure when the opening reception will be, but will post just as soon as we have the news.

Eye Candy

Last year I posted about being featured in the summer 2013 issue of Fiber Art Now magazine.  FAN kindly sent me a pdf of the article written by Wendy Feldberg, but inexplicably I forgot to share it with you here on the blog.   It was a boost to the ego for sure to be the only artist from the USA to be included in this group of seven international artists which includes Arlee Barr-Canada, Yvonne Dalton-Australia, Irit Dulman-Israel, Wendy Feldberg-Canada, Fabienne Rey-The Netherlands, and Elena Ulyanova-Ukraine.

Since Fabienne and Irit are participating in my From the Inside Out exhibit, I realized there is no time like the present to present a little eye candy to remind you of the upcoming exhibit.

The longest wait is almost over

Remember this piece? I first posted about it in October 2011.

On the pipe the color is fresh and beginning to oxidize. Below is a snap of the piece just unwrapped and still wet.

Below that are details after the fabric had dried. Since 2011 the fabric has been stored loosely in a tin lined box. I'm about to pull it out and wash it for the first time.

Stay tuned for results and keep your fingers crossed.

Invisibility Cloak

A wee bit of summer to take my mind off the cold snap.

October was the greatest!

As you can guess from the pictures I was in Paris.  Wish I'd had longer than 4 days, but it was a whirlwind trip that included a stop in Nice before crossing into Italy.

My first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower
One of the gorgeous views of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
 The gardens at Versailles.
A camera savvy pigeon in an elderberry tree behind Notre Dame Cathedral.  The trees were loaded with birds feasting on the berries.

I'll fill you in on the trip over a few posts.

New shibori

dupioni experiment
Just playing around with a new resist and some mark making--my secret until I see how it all plays out.
