I hope you are all doing well, getting a lot of studio time as well as enjoying this beautiful weather.
It is time for some bragging. Surely, you have been working or at least trying to do so over the summer. We would like to hear what you have done, accomplished, seen (exhibits) and or classes and workshops you have taken. In other words, we want the low down on news from our members.
I'll start the ball rolling because I am very happy with my exhibit schedule this summer. I have a piece at the Northville Arts House, in the "Thoughts with Thread, 2012, exhibit. Several other members who are well known to you are also exhibiting there, but they will need to toot their own horn. The exhibit runs through Saturday, August 25th.
Next, I will have two large works in the "Fibers Fantastic: Rare Threads" exhibit which will open Sunday, September 23, at 1 p.m. and run through Saturday, November 3rd. It is sponsored by the Jordan River Arts Council and will be held at the Jordan River Arts Center at 301 Main St, East Jordan River, MI.
And finally, I just learned that two more large pieces will be in the "American Craft Today" exhibit at the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts, in Highlands, N.C.
I have been working on a new series called, "I Love Detroit", and have completed nine pieces to date. This is the series some of you got a peek at during our SAQA/SDA show and tell. The series is made from digitally altered photos that are commercially printed, assembled and screen printed. I am looking for a venue here in Detroit for an exhibit. Any suggestions?
So, how about it? What have you been doing? Please let us know by sending your news to Lynn at firstname.lastname@example.org, or to me at email@example.com.
