Upcoming Arts Council Juried Art Exhibit at CityArts

Two of my paintings from the "Sojourning" series have been accepted to the 2013 Arts Council Juried Art Exhibit at CityArts, Wichita, KS.  This is the third consecutive year that my paintings were accepted to this juried show.  This year's juror is Rachel Epp Buller, Ph.D.  She is an assistant professor of Art at Bethel College in Newton, KS and author or "Reconciling Art and Mothering".  Maybe I should read that book.

A Thread X (Meets) A Thread - Installation Art

My solo exhibition at The Fiber Studio ended, and my installation art piece, "A Thread X (Meets) A Thread" was taken down.  I made this piece to express my appreciation of meeting people, so I am dreaming that this piece will travel around the world in some more exhibits and meet even more people!  Thank you to those of you who participated in making this piece by adding the threads.  Here are some photos of the piece after the show ended.  The artist statement for this work is here.

 I am hoping this installation art piece will be exhibited in different countries and meet more people.  この作品がさらに様々な国で展示され、より多くの人と出会うことを願っています。
J'espère que cette pièce d'art d'installation sera exposée dans différents pays et rencontrera plus de gens.

Espero que esta obra de arte de instalación se exhibirá en diferentes países y conocer a más personas.
Ich hoffe, diese Installation Kunstwerk wird in verschiedenen Ländern ausgestellt werden und treffen mehr Menschen.

Artist Talk

     Last week, I had an opportunity to talk about my work to a couple of art classes. One was a college students' class, and another was a junior high school students'. I love talking about my work!  After the talk, they collaborated with me in making my installation art piece by adding more threads.  This interactive experience with my installation art must have been a little different from their regular art classes.  I appreciate the art teachers and the parents who brought the students down to the gallery.
