SDA Show

We went to opening night at the Craddock-Terry Gallery in Riverviews Artspace and it was well worth the drive! The gallery space is gorgeous. All the artists in this show are members of the Virginia and West Virginia region of Surface Design Association. The curator chose works as a survey, so there was no overall theme or size requirements — just good work. She did admit to having a preference for works with a strong narrative, and maybe a penchant for the color blue, but overall, there was a nice range of technique, scale, and mood.

I’m kicking myself that I forgot to bring my good camera because Absence II is finally in a space that can accommodate it’s size. I may have to go back during the day to photograph it.

SDA Show in Lynchburg, VA

I’ve finally joined Surface Design Association, whose mission is to promote awareness & appreciation of the textile arts. I’ve long beleived I should join, but never actually got around to it. The tipping point was wanting to support my fellow Fiber Transformed member, and local SDA representative, Jill as she is organizing a regional show. The bonus is that I now have two pieces, Aquifer and Absence II, accepted into the show,  fiber + fabric: art • craft • design at Craddock Terry Gallery in Lynchburg, VA. Yay!

The exhibition will be a selection of SDA artists from Virginia and West Virginia. If yo are in the area, please come see the show — especially on opening night.

 

Exhibition Dates: May 3 – June 16, 2013

Show Opening: May 3, 2013, 5:30 to 8:00pm.  Curator talk at 6:00pm. I’ll be there, as well as several other artists.
