From the Inside Out

Thrilling news to convey…Updated as of 03/08/2014

Mapping the Time to mend and heal, Scroll V, detail II 

My good friend Elizabeth Adams-Marks and I are were invited to curate a fibers show
and we went a little crazy, took a few bold steps and invited some friends of ours that
we've never met except online. Even crazier--they all said YES!  

Fabienne Rey of the Netherlands whose work is shown above, along with Irit Dulman of Israel,
and Rio Wrenn of Portland, Oregon will join us in this exhibition titled

From the Inside Out 
Felt, Paper, Textiles: Revelations in Natural Mark Making

Our venue has changed since I originally wrote this post in June 2013
Our new venue is the gallery in the new Art & Design West building at
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Our new dates for the show  August 18 - September 21, 2014
Opening reception date and time TBA

I created a blog to showcase From the Inside Out  
You can find profiles on all the artists, workshop information and a description of the show theme.
Go visit!  Lot's of news there.

This is an updated version of a previous post.

It's official! As of June 18--the magazine is in the mail and on it's way to newstands!

I am so excited to be featured in the upcoming summer issue of Fiber Art Now in an article written by Wendy Feldberg of Canada.  Several facebook fiber friends will also be included in the article:  Arlee Barr of Canada, Fabienne Dorsman-Rey of the Netherlands, Irit Dulman of Israel, and Elena Ulyanova of Ukrain.  Yvonne Dalton of Australia is also featured.  I've read about her in HandEye magazine and of course Wendy's own work will be in the article too.  Unearthing Eco Dyes discusses the varied ways each of us explore natural plant and earth based materials to imprint and color textiles.
Another facebook friend, Leisa Rich of Atlanta, Georgia penned the article Plastics in Fiber.

Can't wait to get this issue.  If you haven't subscribed yet--you should consider it.  Fiber Art Now is a quality magazine with gorgeous photos.   Many Books A Million and Barnes and Noble bookstores here in the states are carrying it.  

I'll not provide the link to the magazine because of possible spam issues, but you can easily Google the title.  The website provides info on which bookstores carry the magazine, subscription info, etc.
