Two weeks, two storms... and counting

On Friday night, November 18, we had our reception and artist panel for Stitched: Nature Constructed. A nice night of lively conversation with co artists Merill Comeau and Saberah Malik as we answered the thoughtful questions of the student moderators. Two weeks into the exhibit, after 6 days of heavy rain and wind, I'm happy to report that the outdoor installation Mushroomed is still intact, in place, and vibrant. Thanks to the gallery and building and grounds department for providing the spotlight.. I love the drama it creates.

Yesterday was the install day for Stitched: Nature Constructed. A student curated show at the Cushing-Martin Gallery, Stonehill College. The students chose a theme, posted a call, reviewed artists and visited studios in order to make their selections.

The show consists of works by myself, Merill Comeau and Saberah Malik... each with our own response " the constant changing of nature - both natural and man-made, through the re-shaping of fiber to create images of ironic beauty."

Exhibition Dates:
Monday, November 7 - Monday, December 12

Reception and Artist Panel:
Friday, November 18, 6-8 pm

Four of my works are included. Undercurrent and Marrow plus two new pieces, Transplant and an outdoor installation called Mushroomed... something that grew quickly as if from nothing :).
