Hello! It’s been far too long since I’ve posted in my blog. I wanted to update you with my schedule and happenings in my studio.
Tomorrow morning, I leave for the Brookside Art Annual, in Kansas City, MO. It’s a show that I LOVE, and have done about ten times in the past. Wonderful customers, wonderful show director and staff and other wonderful artists. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, but that’s always the issue with outdoor shows. I am in Booth #97, and will be open Friday evening, Saturday all day and evening and till 5 on Sunday. I am very excited because it’s been so long since I have been to this show because of COVID, and I can’t wait to see my people! I will also have lots of new work to show you
After Brookside, I leave on May 18 to show at the ACC/American Made craft show in Baltimore, MD. This is the grandaddy of them all. But the show has been refined and peeled back this year and will have fewer exhibitors. I will be in booth #418, and while I will be showing my beaded jewelry, I will be primarily exhibiting my stitched paintings and crochet pieces. This is a big move for me. I’m nervous and excited and looking forward to seeing people and receiving feedback on my new work.
Later, in late July- I will be going to Bellevue Washington to the Bellevue Art Museum show – July 29-31. I’ll be in booth M-19. I can’t wait to return to the Pacific Northwest and to see my wonderful people there! I will be showing my jewelry.
SO: I wanted to post some of my stitched pieces as well as the crochet work for you to get an idea of the direction I am heading. I am very inspired to work on these BIG pieces of fiber art. They are speaking to me, both in the process( which is so fulfilling to me), as well as how they turn out. They are mostly abstract. They are bold and fresh, and this is exciting to me. I feel like I am clearing a new path for myself. Towards what? I’m not sure!
