Art Quilts XI: Stages, Cycles & Fits

Friday, September 1st, 2006

I have spent so much time on the two commissions earlier this spring, that I have not had a chance to get much new work done that I can enter in shows. Last week was the deadline for the Art Quilts XI show at the Chandler Center for the Arts in Arizona, curated by Diane Howell. On a whim, I entered Mallory Brook, in the orientation suggested by my crit group. It was in a show in Marin County last fall, but it has not gotten in to any other shows. I sent in jpegs via e-mail and today got an e-mail from Diane saying it was juried in to the show. As a reminder, here it is in all its surface design glory:


I have not been good about replying to comments. I have been so busy. M & M were here over night and after pancakes and black berries, they went home. Then I had to walk Maggie and rush off to get my hair done – a nice new red color. Since all the artwork came off the walls while Steve painted, it was my job to get it back in place. This was no easy feat ?Ǩ remember my wall of crosses? He left the nails in, but I had to pull up the photo on my computer and begin putting them back. It was like doing a puzzle. Now I have to get packed to leave early in the morning for Seattle. Ta!
