This is not a great photo,, but in my rush I framed it and had to take the photo through the glass.. I believe I did show this before and most of you know that I show at Timberline Gallery in Oakhurst.. The discussion has been frame or unframed for fiber.. That discussion aside, and an opportunity came up...
The Alliance of California Artists had a call out for their Major open annual show, theme this year is "Cityscape" and the venue is the Visalia Arts, in Visalia Calif. My friend Kathleen Mattox was going to enter also... and she volunteered to take my piece in.
We are both delighted that our art won ribbons. Mine in Mixed Media, there was no fiber category, Kathleen's in two other categories. So stretch ladies, the artwork is in the gallery at Visalia Arts till the end of the month.. If you are in the "Neighborhood" do stop in...
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
