"Stitch by Stitch: Circles of Memory, Appreciations in Thread" (9/9/15 post) will be coming down from the Artisan Gallery in Paoli tomorrow morning, and the Fiber Arts Bienniale (7/13/15 post) recently concluded, but there are still several other opportunities to see my artwork on display in Wisconsin over the next three months.
The annual "Artful Women" exhibition at the University of Wisconsin Hospital is being hung this weekend, and I have two of my cigar-box framed embroideries in the show. "Mother & Child" is there along with my newest bead embroidery--"Beach Haiku."
"Beach Haiku" is hand embroidered with glass and Lucite beads as well as a piece of driftwood and fossilized sharks' teeth that I found on beaches many years ago.
The opening reception for "Artful Women" is on Sunday, November 15, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the Sky Lounge Gallery of the hospital. The show runs through December 5 and is filled with art in all media by Wisconsin women artists. Sales from the exhibition benefit the American Family Children's Hospital and the Wisconsin Women's Network as well as the invited artists.
Next weekend Sunday, November 8, "From Insects to Elephants" (10/19/15 post) is opening with a reception from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts, in Cedarburg. The show runs through January 10 and is filled with art quilts by invited fiber artists from throughout the U.S. The museum also has a special display of several pieces of my original artwork, archival prints, and bead embroidered ornament kits in the museum shop.
I'll be attending both receptions and hope to see you there!
