Photos from "Movements of Threads" Show at CityArts (2)

      My solo exhibition "Movements of Threads" ended last week.  The show was visited by many people in City of Wichita.  Here are some more photos from the show.

     These are the photos taken right after the opening reception.  The collaboration with the musicians was an exciting adventure to me.  A classical chamber music piece "Sojourning Threads" was composed based on my installations.  I feel totally humbled.   We are hoping this piece will be performed in future exhibitions and recitals.  Oboe: Cindy Crawford Thompson  Viola: Kay Neal Buskirk  Double bass: Daniel Racer  Composer: Daniel Racer  Photo credit: Miles Thompson



My ongoing interactive installation piece "A Thread X A Thread"




More threads were added.

     "A Thread X A Thread" in the front and "Akari" in the back.  I made "Akari" in 2010 originally, and revised it for this show.  





I am excited that several paintings found their new home.  

     It was a magical space creating depth with the gray walls and reflections and shadows on dark floors.  It was sad to take down the show, but hopefully, I will do similar shows at different places in near future.  For now, good-bye to "Movements of Threads," and thank you to everybody who made this show happen.

Photos from "Movements of Threads" Show at CityArts (1)

     Thank you to those of you who have already visited my show at CityArts!  I have been enjoying reading your comments on my guest book.  I hope all my friends in this area can visit this show before it is going to disappear forever.  I am going to share more photos from the show here.

So happy to be surrounded by my paintings in this spacious gallery.


I will post more photos later.
This exhibition was introduced and reviewed at these sites.

Symphony in the Flint Hills 2017

     A couple of days ago, my husband and I went to Symphony in the Flint Hills.  This year, it was held at Deer Horn Ranch near Junction City, Kansas.  This year's event was commemorating the 150th anniversary of Chisholm Trail.  

     This is the second time we were able to go there because of free tickets, thanks to the opportunity of submitting my works to be printed in their annual Field Journal. This year, I am excited that my work was included to the event's program brochure as well, which was handed out to 7,000 people.  I am glad to be a small part of this beautiful event!   

     We enjoyed the music, nature, and the people who look so natural in this open prairie land.  Beautiful evening.  Love calling ourselves Kansans.

     I couldn't resist taking this photo with the Flint Hills Field Journal (front right), the Commemorative Program (front center and left), and my actual painting (back) together.  I am so thankful for this rare opportunity.
