I’m thrilled and honored to announce that Watt & Shand #8 has been accepted into Craft Forms 2011, Dec. 2, 2011 - Jan. 21, 2012, at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA. The juror is Elisabeth Agro of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She reviewed almost 900 submissions, in all mediums, by applicants from around the world, and chose 126 works of art for this year’s exhibit.
Happily, the Wayne Art Center is close enough to my home that I will be able to attend the Preview Party on the evening of Dec. 2, and the Juror’s Talk / Meet the Artist event the next day from 1 - 3 p.m. I love attending fine craft shows, as the diversity of expression and creativity on display is tremendously inspirational. I have grown to enjoy coming out of the seclusion of my studio and putting on my extrovert hat for these types of events--it’s always so interesting to hear what viewers think about my work, and to get the chance to talk to other exhibiting artists.
This work is part of a series of 10 art quilts I created about the renovation of a historic building in Lancaster, PA into a hotel and convention center. You can see all ten on my website, track back the entire series in progress and see where they’ve been shown by clicking on the Watt & Shand tab at the top of the page, and/or read more about #8 specifically here.
Thanks for visiting and reading!
