Dressing Up!

There were many little black dresses, although some were creatively alluded to.

Jill Kertula’s excellent piece took “Best In Show!” Well deserved for her vision and execution!

The Little Black Dress.Best Of Show

Among the figurative works, Suzanne Munroe deserves honors for her “The Long Wait,” which captured the essential feelings of a young woman waiting for the justice system to allow her fiance to enter the US for their marriage.

The Dress itself was well represented among the diverse selections – well done on the part of the curaters!

The events the dresses were worn to were fabulous as well!

As a former Yellow Cab driver, I totally appreciated this abstraction!

My camera died as I took this pic, so I didn’t capture quite a few.  Of course, I can’t remember the names of them all. Hope you got to see it!


Contemporary Art Quilt ’17

Yesterday I attended the opening of the Contempoary Art Quilt Exhibit at The Whistler House Museum in Lowell – a really strong exhibit, well worth the trip up there.  There were two awards for Whistler’s Award this time!

 You can take in 2 or 3 fine exhibits in at the same time.  I also made a run through the NEQM to check out the The U.S. Premiere of THREADS OF RESISTANCE!

​Now through September 10, 2017 which was awesome!

2 Things: Exhibit and Eco-Printed Shirt

I finished another shirt, a thrift store upcycle.  It’s an all cotton,  Woman’s size 1x. I’ll put it on Etsy soon. Luscious autumn colors with lots of sumac eco-printed on this piece.

REMINDER:  My piece, Shaman’s Dream, will be on exhibit in the Fiber In The Present Tense, starting tomorrow at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown. I’ll be at the artist’s reception on Saturday, September 10th.
