Szozda Gallery - Full Circle

I have been busy as a bee preparing for the opening tonight of the show, Full Circle at the Szozda Gallery in Syracuse. My vessels are part of a three woman show, my wonderful artist friend Linda Esterly recommended me for this event. It is a thrill to be showing my work alongside her amazing collage paintings. Her expression of inner being emanates from each piece.
It was such a thrill to see my vessels on display as Caroline the owner of Szozda was tweaking the lighting to be just perfect. My work in 3D is fairly new, and I am enjoying the challenge of it... it is very evolves beneath my fingers. I perceive a piece and begin and by the time it is completed I see something so very different and exciting! So come to Szozda if you are in the area - the show will be on from now until April 3. I will be doing a felting demonstration at the gallery on Saturday, April 2nd, so if you would like to see how the wool transforms from fluff to art please join us there on the 2nd from 11 to 4.

Winter Means Art Fair Applications

After a few months hiatus and managing the various issues of life, it is time to plan for 2011... Out to the post went the contract for a show with my artist friend Linda Esterly, at Szozda Gallery on Fayette Street in Syracuse in March 9 thru April 3, a short stent at Jowonio School as the Artist in Residence for a fun felting experience with loads of students under the title: "Everyone is an Artist!"... Finally applications off to several Spring and Fall shows. The most fun show this Summer will probably be participating in the Finger Lakes Lavender Festival in Skaneateles, NY July 9-10. What fun to meld my felting art with the wonderful sights and smells of the Lockwood Lavender Farm...

So it is back to the fiber studio for this artist!
