A while back I decided to cut back on entering shows to display my art. While I was meeting with what I thought was good success, I was beginning to feel as though I was being ruled by a schedule of applying, accepting, and shipping works around the world. My already busy life was about to become busier with trans-continental commutes. I also wanted some time to percolate a bit and focus on developing skills like hand-stitching. As a result, you have to search a bit more to view my works in public.
Despite my reclusiveness, my works have been surfacing this summer and will continue to show up in a number of venues this fall:
- Rochester Contemporary Art Center
You may remember a post of mine earlier this year about the 6×6 show in Rochester, NY. About 7,000 works were displayed both online and at the center in June. People could purchase the 6″ by 6″ works but the artist’s name was not revealed until after the purchase was complete.
I am happy to report that my contribution was displayed and purchased within the first week! While I couldn’t post it earlier to abide by the rules of the event, I am happy to share it here.
- SAQA 25th Anniversary Trunk Show
It seems like ages ago, but I did send in a contribution to SAQA’s 25th Anniversary Trunk Show. I was just reminded in a friendly email from William Reker, the SAQA Traveling Exhibition Coordinator that my piece, Crevasse, will be traveling in Oregon through August 2014.
- “Up Against the Wall” at A Different Path Gallery
In September you will find two of my works on display in a show of my local fiber arts group, RAFA. The show will run September 5-26, 2014 and I will be sure to mention it again on this blog as it gets closer. The two works are:
- 2014 Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival
I am delighted that once again one of my art quilts will be appearing in the annual show of the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum in La Conner, WA. The show will be October 3-5, 2014 and I will be sure to remind you of it as the date gets closer!
I am pleased with all of these opportunities. While I am enjoying my relatively quiet profile, it is always nice to be acknowledged! 🙂
