Curating and Participating - show #4 of 5 this season

Our fabulous show card in living color -- at the printers now.  Can't wait till it gets here.  
It's huge - will be 6 x 11"

The card  showcases details of work in progress for each of the 6 artists who share a relationship of teacher, student or mentor.  We collaborated 4 years ago, and thought it would be great to come together again.  I believe we all thought it would be easier this time around--but not a chance.  We are more challenged than ever to use each other's materials in our own work and it definitely seems like all of us have more going on in our other lives.

 Since we started working on Material Revival, three of us have started or are starting new jobs, one of us had a baby (not me!!), a couple of us have multiple shows going on simultaneously, and two of us moved into new digs this summer.  Yikes!
Only a few more weeks left to pull everything together and install the show.  

Mark your calendars!
Material Revival - September 11 to October 16, 2015
Opening reception - Friday, September 18, 6-8 pm
Artist Talk - Sunday, October 4, 3-5 pm

Fiber Focus - 2nd of 5 shows.

Fiber Focus opened at Art Saint Louis today, August 8, 2015  downtown at 1223 Pine Street, St. Louis, MO.  I'm tickled to death to have a piece is this show.  Marci Rae McDade, editor of Surface Design Journal was the juror for this fabulous show which is part of Innovations in Textiles 10. Fiber Focus, which is the only juried show associated with Innovations, will remain on display through October 8.  A very special reception will be held on Saturday October 3 from 6-9 pm. Marci will be there to speak about the show, her selections and awards will be announced.  

Here is the whole piece for the Fiber Focus show.

The BIG weekend for Innovations will also include several Friday Oct 2 gallery openings, a bus tour of select galleries participating in innovations on Saturday, Oct 3, AND a self guided tour called Fiber East where we hope lots of St. Louis folks will cross the river to join Illinoians to visit Sun Smith Foret's studio/gallery in Alton, Lillian Bates' By Design studio and boutique and finally Edwardsville Arts Center to see Material Revival that I am curating and participating in.  

Material Revival (September 7 to October 8 at Edwardsville Arts Center) is held in conjunction with Innovations in Textiles 10, a regional collaborative event celebrating fiber art. Visit for more information.

My first show of the season, Transformed by Time at Stone Bridge Valley Art Center in Michael, IL opened last Saturday and will be up through August 31. You can read about that here
