A Look Back

I’ve been looking back to assess my work for this year and this is what I found! It’s not everything.  I have a good sized stack of UFOs I still need to have at it. I do believe I’ve accomplished the goals I set out to do last year: Build a body of work that has my voice instilled in it; submit to exhibits and yes, indeed,  I was accepted into one curated show and three juried shows!  The last goal is almost there.  My son Mark is working with me to start up a website – hooray!  This all adds up to a pretty happy artist ready to fully embrace 2015!

These are some of the pieces I worked on this year that have been finished and either mounted or bound. That makes 20 finishes for 2013, but I’ll show you a few more tomorrow.

Nancy Bartach Art Quilts

Nancy Bartach is a California textile artist whose work has shown in two of the recent exhibits that I’ve seen lately.

 Accelerating – Decelerating was shown in the IFA’s “Multiplicities, New Directions in Fiber Exhibit in Warren, RI last month.   This piece draws you right to it with it’s color and light and its lively sense of rhythm.

Dappled was at the Whistler Museum Gallery in the “How Does Your Garden Grow” Exhibit.  Again, that sense of movement and light attracts your eye immediately.  The undulating patterns give it a life of its own.
