Tuesday, January 10, 2012
It seemed that creativity had just gone away, with the desire to work in my
Although that gave me a chance to do other things I was
interested in (like started my bee yard), something was missing in my life and
I was not quite sure of my identity anymore.
It seems that 2012 is starting on a more positive note with
2 upcoming exhibits of my work.
One of them is at the Cabarrus County Arts Council, titled “In
& Out” and I was invited to share the boxes of my Offerings series. The
exhibit will open on January 17 and run until March 8, 2012. The Cabarrus Arts
Council is situated in the Historic Cabarrus Courthouse in downtown Concord, a
really beautiful building. The exhibit rooms look wonderful.
If you are in that area and would like to see the show, here
is the contact information:
Historic Courthouse, 65 Union Street South, Concord, NC
Phone: (704) 920 (2787), website: http://www.cabarrusartscouncil.org/.
The other exhibit, for which I made new work, mostly in embroidered
fabric and manipulated copper, is in the Focus Gallery at the Folk Art Center
(on the Blue Ridge Parkway close to Asheville). The Focus gallery showcases the
work of members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, usually two artists at a
time. I will share the space with glass artist Cheryl Hevrdeys. The exhibit
opens on January 14 and will run until April 17, 2012.
