Success!

I am thrilled to say that I've been juried into a couple of shows. This is Patina of Radiance. It's about 10x15."It will be in the Visual Arts Society of Texas 125-Mile exhibit from August 21 to September 28 at Texas Women's University. (Artists who live in a 125 mile radius of Denton, TX are eligible.) I am thrilled that it was accepted along with other visual arts and eager to see how my small fiber piece looks hanging with oils, watercolors and photography. The opening reception is August 21 from 4:30 to 6:30, of course... if you're in the area...

And here is For the Beauty of Each Hour. It's about 20x25."
It will be in the show called "New Frontiers: an exhibition of contemporary fiber art" from September 7 to September 29 at Art House in McAllen, TX.

And a little detail. All my favorite things: handwriting, seed stitch, square sequins, unexpected materials -- like the hem of an old pair of jeans.
Mary Ruth Smith will also have two pieces in the show. She's in the current Quilt National show. Wow. What an honor... oh and as a bonus: I just happen to be taking a class from her on Saturday!

Congratulations! I will definitely be in town on the 21st so Molly and I (and quite possibly Logan and Caleb too) will look for you.
