I looking forward to a road trip to Connecticut to see the nationally juried show Fiber 2020 at the Silvermine Art Center.
The gallery is now co-vid closed as we all remain sheltered at home. The good news is that the entire show is online so you can get a peak at all of the terrific pieces selected by juror Beth Mclaughlin, Chief Curator at the Fuller Craft Museum.
Twilight Off The Bow was accepted in the WIDE OPEN 11 art exhibition by juror Paulina Pobocha, Associate Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York!
Only thing is, due to covid-19 the show has been postponed until later this summer. I’ll let you know when Opening Day is rescheduled. There will be a reception and juror’s award winners will be announced at the Opening whenever that is.

When I applied for the 14C Art Fair, I did not think my application would be accepted. You don’t get if you don’t try, so I applied anyway, to both the Juried Show and for my own room to exhibit and host a fiber workshop. And by some miracle, here I am with an acceptance to both.
My work will be on display in exhibition room 843 at the Hyatt Regency, Exchange Place in Jersey City NJ from February 21st – 23rd.
I will be hosting a Yarn Wrapping Workshop in my exhibition room through out the art fair. Watch this space for more detail on the times for the workshop and to sign up.
Ive been invited to participate in an as yet unnamed group exhibit at BSB Gallery in Trenton NJ this May 2020. The exhibit was inspired by my conversation with the curator about the experiences women of color in the corporate world. My work will be featured alongside several other black women’s that hold a commanding presence both in their artwork and in their daily lives. I am really looking forward to meeting the other artists.
If Wonder Woman Selfie tapestry has not found a new home by May, I think her largess will fit nicely at BSB Gallery, in their soaring double height space. I hope they think so also…
