Blurred Boundaries Show

Blurred Boundaries started today and runs through September 4th.

It is a Mixed Media Fiber Art exhibit Juried by Virginia Spiegel and curated by  Lynn Krawczyk.

The definition of Fiber Art has evolved greatly over the past few years, opening up a new range of possibilities to artists working in various disciplines. Fiber artists are incorporating more mediums into their work, creating unique art that reaches across previously defined boundaries. Artists from other mediums are discovering the infinite possibilities that fiber can offer, also creating hybrids that are eye catching and moving. Blurred Boundaries seeks these arttworks for a week long exhibition honoring the ingenuity of mixed media fiber art.

I have two pieces on display:

“Fairytale Forest (click to enlarge) ©2009  32″ x 32”

Pink House

Pink House ©2009  18″ x 18″

The exhibit will be open to the public during the following hours: 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Exhibit Location: Fabrications Retreat, Raddison Plaza Hotel Kalamazoo, Michigan

Show dates: August 31 – September 4, 2009

I know it’s not officially “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” but I got his wonderful paper Viking from Sandra and I just had to show him off.

I also have a few events coming up worth mentioning.

August 30th — September 4th: see two of my fiber collages (“Pink House” and “Fairytale Forest“) at the Blurred Boundaries exhibit at the Fabrications Retreat in Kalamazoo, MI.

September 7th: This is the last day to put your Iraqi Bundles of Love in the mail. Purge your stash, contribute to a good cause, and make the world a smaller more pieceful place all at the same time.

September 10th: First day of the annual SAQA Auction. I didn’t make the deadline for submitting a piece this year but that shouldn’t stop anyone from checking out all the other wonderful and affordable textile art and supporting a great organization.

September 25th — 27th: Breaking Traditions benefit exhibit at the American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI. This year’s theme is Home and I’ve donated one of my house/chair/roots pieces. If you go to the show, vote for my art and I might win a prize.

October 15th — 18th: Tactile Architecture at International Quilt Festival Houston. My art quilt “Aquifer” will be there and then travel with TA to IQF in Chicago, IL and Long Beach, CA in 2010.
