One Passion, Many Voices

Ooooo show postcards came in the mail yesterday! One of my favorite things about being in group shows is the postcards. I am so happy and honored to be in this group. The large 'feathery' piece above is by Deborah Kruger; 'transforming the fluid and sensuous materials of fiber and wax'. I urge you to visit her site and learn more about this amazing woman and her work. I was lucky enough to interview Deborah for Valley Fiber Life magazine. We had known each other casually for years. We had never had deep conversations about life, work and energy. So it was a real treat to sit her in studio and delve into many topics. Enjoy the read.

I will be showing this piece in One Passion, Many Voices at Artworks!:

We Can Use This Map, 2010. 36" x 28" rust printed, hand stitched on cotton muslin, folds intentional.

I may be demonstrating rust printing at the exhibit in New Bedford, MA on February 19th. I will announce it if it happens. I will definitely be at the artist reception on March 5 from 3-5pm.
Hope to see you.

Being Light

This is how I feel about the new year. Filaments of light suspended in space.

This was taken at a recent visit to MassMoCA in North Adams, MA. (I can't find my note on the artist name, I will get back to you with that. ) It is a homage to the Hoosac Tunnel in the Berkshires. The sculpture of mono-filament and light is large enough to walk in. It was a magical experience. My husband and I stood face to face surrounded by this light and I just shivered. I feel I can't be completely eloquent because it was a profound experience. If you are within a reasonable driving distance to North Adams, MA I urge you to experience this sculpture.


I hope to not feel this way about the new year. That's me in the corner. Kinda looking like Little Miss Muffet. Wrapper paper never looked so ominous.
