In November and December, the Durham Arts Council is presenting an exhibition titled Material/Process that includes five of my recent pieces. The other artists are Gibby Waitzkin, Holden Richards, Reni Gower and Jackie MacLeod. Rather than choosing a theme like Climate Change to unite the show, the Director, Susan Tierney, organized the show by including artists for whom process is a central part of their art practice.
Designing Merchandise using my Art. Even though I am enjoying a lot of visibility these days (I was in five exhibitions this year!) sales are slow and like most artists, I need a steady revenue stream to support my habit.

One of the fun things about exploring new cities is seeing their art museums. We had one day in wonderful Milwaukee where we sampled their best coffee, the Domes at Mitchell Park, the Harley Davidson Museum and the architecturally amazing Milwaukee Art Museum.
Once again, I am honored to be included in International Fiber Arts IX, an international fiber show at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts on the coast of northern California. My piece, Homeland won a Merit Award and was also the piece chosen for the cover of the exhibition pamphlet and for the postcard announcing the show.
Attending the opening for Fiberart International in Pittsburgh, PA was thrilling and inspiring. There were 55 artists from 8 countries in this 23rd triennial exhibition and about half of them were able to come to the events that were sponsored by the two galleries that hosted the show, Contemporary Craft and the Brew House.
