Fiber Exhibit at Capital Arts
If I ever make big bucks, the first thing I'll do (after getting an accountant) is hire someone to do the framing.
My very favorite was the "Garden" piece that only got finished today -
I gave up on finding a title for the rather wild round one, made by putting silk "fusion" over basket reed. It's definitely colorful.
One piece is "pulp painting" with added pieces of cast paper plus writing with pens and gold foil - art that has been on display in St. Louis that I retrieved last Saturday.
Now I can get on to other things - like catching up on the casting tutorials and back to finishing pieces for the Art Bazaar "Featured Artist" display coming up. I'm getting better at achieving the results I want with the silk fusion and having fun mixing it with paper casting. Some of the silk "tiles" I did to look quilt-like may end up in a piece that's more like Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass design - whichever way ti turns out, it will be at the Art Bazaar in April.
So, if you are in Jefferson City, head over to Capital Arts and see the fiber art! Reception is Sunday March 10, 1-4 p.m. if you want to meet artists (though I probably won't be there - but I will be at the reception and awards ceremony for the International Church Art Competition in Salt Lake City on March 16)
