Seasons Change

I've been working on this project for a few months.  From the initial idea, sketches, winding out the yarn, dyeing the yarn and more sketching.  Now that the project is on the loom, I can put my hands on it and bring my ideas forward.  After it is woven, I'll use needle and thread to bring the cloth closer to the image I have in my mind's eye.  The piece has been named for months now.  It is Community.  I wanted to make a piece to express my gratification to the amazing group of people I find myself among.  Fiber people are an incredible tribe of artist.  This community has given so much to me as a student and as a newer face putting my work forward.  I hope that I can help contribute as much as I've been given.

I am bittersweet about the end of my summer. I loved the seemingly endless span of days and the feeling of possibilities   I had a lot of goals for myself this summer and I've met them.  I even added to them and those were accomplished as well.  I have another deadline for submitting work at the end of the month. I think the work for that will come together despite summer's end.  I just have to keep pushing myself.

School resumes for me this coming week and I'm ready.  I'm reaching towards something that I can't quite articulate yet.  It is exciting.

Calendar Dates

I have some news to report. I have a piece accepted into the Weavers Guild show THAT’S PAPER!?! I can't wait to see the show, from what I saw at drop off it will be a good one!

The show opening reception is Friday, August 23, 2013 - 6:00pm - 8:30pm. The exhibition runs until Sunday, October 20, 2013 at The St. Louis Artists Guild which is at 2 Oak Knoll Park St Louis, MO 63105

I will also have a table at the Hawkin House Christmas Market in Webster Groves, MO.  A fellow artists told me about this event and I'm looking forward to it.  I think it will be a good fit for my work as it is limited to handmade arts and crafts.  I will have handwovens, hand dyed wearables as well as some art quilts at this event.

I have added a calendar to my blog which you can find at the top navigation bar.  Hopefully this will help share where I'll be or where you can see my work.
