Spring finally rolled in. The sun is shining, everything is blooming, and birds are chirping. Quite wonderful in other words. My weekly book project is going slower than expected. I have made nine books so far this year, which means one book every two weeks (26+ for the year) is a more realistic goal. I still love the challenge and am learning a lot as I go along.
In Mid-March I went to Sweden for a whirl-wind visit with my family and to celebrate my dear sisters 50th birthday. We spent some time by the southern coast and had a geat time. I miss my homeland more than I will admit.
Three of my works (Similitude, Sumac Study, and Window Panes) are currently on display in the group exhibit Living with Art: Real Art for Real People, located in the Washington Technology Park, 15000 Conference Center Drive, in Chantilly, Virginia. The exhibit space is open to the public from 9 am - 5 pm, Monday through Friday, until June 30.
Two of my pieces were accepted to Tarnish, a SAQA regional group exhibit at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. The show is up from May 2 to June 1, and there will be an opening reception on May 9, from 7 to 9 pm. I am excited to be part of such a high caliber event.
If you are looking for an event to exhibit your work I highly recommend applying to World of Threads Festival, a multi-venue fiber extravaganza taking place in Toronto (and surrounding areas) in November this year. The deadline is April 22, so time is short.
If you are active on Facebook, I invite you to join my new group page, where I will post news, work in progress, and photos from now on. You can also find me on instagram. Both platforms are great for quick updates and visuals. I am always grateful for your presence here. I appreciate your support and comments, and will try to respond directly when I can. Happy Spring!
