“SHREDS & FRAGMENTS” FIBER ART SHOW and POETRY WORKSHOP

How exciting to have a solo show as the Featured Artist at The Threshold Art Gallery in Redlands, CA. This is a new gallery owned by Aeron and Michelle Brown. Several artists exhibit all the time and one is featured in the front window and walls.

I created several new art works for this show. It was fun to order new fabrics, update my thread colors, and discover treasures I already had to use in the works. As several pieces were completed, I noticed two things: Color themes of light and autumn colors and a shift in style to more graphic arts/ narrative. This shift began a few years ago, but now seems to define my style. The following is a new piece called, “Illusions.” From vintage Chinese stitchery, Japanese Yukata to 1950’s fabric shapes, and Nigerian lace there’s quite a variety in the combinations.

Besides wall pieces there are shelves in two windows available. This was the opportunity to try something new: tapestry sculptures. They are size of small Japanese screens. I like the transparency so light can show through. I play with the back and front of the tapestry. There is space to write my poetry on the back of the wood. These can be placed on the floor, on a desk, or a table. This is “Floating Lily Pads.”

The Opening Reception was a lot of fun. Guest musicians Wendy Hunt and Jennifer Vallely were amazing as were guest poets Michael Cooper and Evelyn Johnson. I got to read too. I appreciate all who came. Canda Lodge even did a painting of me reading poetry. All gifts! Thank you to the community vision of Aeron and Michelle and to all who came and joined in. The show runs through Nov. 29.

In conjunction with the show I will hold a writing workshop on Sunday, November 13 from 2-4. Using prompts students will be inspired by the art on the walls for their writing.
