A Very Good Week

It's been a very good week for me, art-wise.  First I finished piecing Brown Planet, as I blogged about in my last post.  Then I was accepted into two shows.

This is Emerald City, 46" x 45", which you've seen before, part of my Configuration series. It will be taking its maiden voyage to Fort Collins, Colorado at the 30th Annual Art Quilt Exhibition at Lincoln Center. The show runs from July 3-September 5. This one's a little too far for me to travel to the opening, but maybe some of you who live nearby will be able to.  I know there were some very big names in the show last year. I am honored to be included this year.

My little City Lights, 18" x 24", part of the same series, has been to a few places and now will travel to Lowell, MA to be part of the Whistler Inspired Art Quilts 2012 at the Whistler House Museum of Art, August 8-September 1.  That is only about 3 hours from my home, so I hope I can attend the opening. This gallery has been good to me. I've been juried into shows twice before and I sold one piece and won a cash award for the other.

Lastly, if you live anywhere near Greenwich, CT, run don't walk to  Paperworks:Material as Medium at the Flinn Gallery in the Greenwich Library. My quilt group took a field trip to this beautiful upscale town to see the exhibit and, of course, have lunch.  I foolishly left my camera at home, so you'll have to trust me when I say that the show was amazing.

I ended the week last night with a charity wine tasting event.  Today I'm doing a little reorganizing in my studio to prep for my next project.  Stay tuned.

I love your buildings! I have a similar piece in the works--will finish it one day, and seeing yours makes me eager. Congrats on the shows!
