I really have been hiding out. If I pop up out of my safe little hiding hole, then I might not believe it. This year is a very , very good art year. And it’s just mid- May. But it is the result of few very intense years of work. I have so used my blog as a journal that I sadly regret not keeping up.
Lots of exhibits for 2016 are in process. I will do a quick re-cap so I can catch up
1. Color Improvisations 2 curated by Nancy Crow, opened in Germany at the Tuch and Textile Museum. My piece, Time Fragments #2 , was chosen for this exhibit. Marc and I traveled there for the opening. ( By the way if you go to Europe, go for more than 6 days. Jet lag is a killer so once there you might as well enjoy the new time zone you are in and see the sights. Next time we will. ) It was such an honor to see all the large pieces and their proud artists . And catch up with all my friends.
Color Improvisations 2 will be in Neumunster, Germany until August 27, 2016. See the museum site for further details. Hopefully it will travel near and far over the next few years.
2. Fantastic Fibers
Time Fragments #6 was chosen for this exhibit in Paducah, KY at the Yeiser Art Center. This exhibit will run through June 4th. Nice to have this piece be appreciated!
3. Mastery: Sustaining Momentum
This exhibit is an invitational curated by Nancy Crow at the Dairy Barn in Athens, Ohio. It will open in May 27 from 5-7pm and run until November 2016. I will have 6 small works and 3 large piece exhibited. There will be a catalog available for pre-order May 1st on the Dairy Barn site. Follow the link in this post to purchase the catalog. More later on this exhibit as I can’t show you my work yet.
4. Michigan Regional Exhibit This is always a sweet honor to be included in this event. Muskegon Museum of Art is a gem of a museum and has a extremely hard working staff, high quality exhibits and an all around beautiful venue to have work exhibited in.
Don’t miss this exhibit. Muskegon Museum of Art , May 12th-August 3, 2016.
SO many great exhibits out there right now for quilts. It is the time for ALL of us to shine and enjoy the hard work of our hands and hearts!!! Make plans to see them before they move on out of your area!
Congratulations on your amazing work. Now I knoww why you didn’t have time to blog!!
Thanks Beth. I had a hard time thinking of anything else. I wonder what normal will be in my studio this summer. Maybe playing dyes for awhile!
Wow Colleen! What an amazing amount of work you have done! They all look wonderful. It it interesting to see now how your work has developed. I see you used some new colors-black and grey. Enjoy this year after all the time spent making.
I am very much so looking forward to dyeing some neutrals this summer. It is slowly warming up though so maybe soon. Thank you. I remember that first class when you were right next to me. Seems like yesterday.
Congrats, Colleen. The immense amount of work you’ve done is apparent in the two pieces above–they are terrific. I can’t wait to see what you did for the Mastery exhibit!!!
Thanks! I am looking forward to the opening next weekend and seeing everyone’s work.
Well done Colleen! I hope the second half of the year is just as good AND that you have the time to blog about it.
