Over the summer, I wrote an article for Fiber Art Now, entitled “Notes from the Road – The State of Fiber Art in the Netherlands” This article was just published in the Fall, 2017 edition of the magazine. The article includes photographs from some of the exhibitions I visited while in the Netherlands this spring, and it also features three wonderful fiber artists whom I visited while I was there.
My piece, Urbana 3, will be part of the Quilts=Art=Quilts exhibition at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center in Auburn NY. The exhibition runs from October 28, 2017 through January 7, 2018. The artists’ reception will be held on October 28, from 4-6.
I am exhibiting two works in the SPUN fiber exhibition at the NEST Arts Factory in Bridgeport, CT. They are Flow and Evocation. The exhibition opens on October 14, 2017 and runs through November 4th. The gallery is open Thursday through Sunday from 12 to 4, and by appointment. The opening reception for SPUN was held on October 14 from 2-5.
My book, Dyeing Alchemy, was reviewed in the Fall 2016 issue of Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot, the premier journal for handweavers, published by the Handweavers Guild of America. This comprehensive review describes many aspects of the book and discusses its benefits for various audiences.
I taught two workshops at the DIY Textile School in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in May 2017. One was a workshop on deconstructed screen printing. The other, Using Your Beauties, was a composition workshop for using shibori and other hand-printed textiles. The students in these workshops were very hard-working and dedicated, and they produced some interesting fabric and compositions.
