Another Review and "Looking For a Mate"

(Above: Looking For a Mate, an art quilt prototype for an upcoming public art project. Click on image to enlarge.)

I'm absolutely thrill that my solo exhibition received another, positive review. This one was written by Tom Starland, publisher of Carolina Arts, a monthly, regional arts newspaper. To read it, CLICK HERE.

Yesterday I also finished the "prototype" for "Looking For a Mate", a humorous public art project that will take place on November 18th - 20th at Vista Lights, the 25th annual art crawl in Columbia. My proposal is HERE. Basically, the project has invited the public to bring their "mate less" socks to Vista Lights and help create a unique art quilt. The substrata is recycled acrylic felt donated by Guy Jones' business River Runner, the canoe and kayak shop in town. In fact, the event will take place in his store. It promises to be fun. The public assisted art quilt will become the property of the Congaree Vista Guild who sponsored the project. I can't wait!

I love this idea Susan. I was just switching out my closet from Summer to Winter clothes and realized I had a whole box of mismatched socks. Wish I were nearby so that I could contribute to your quilt! You are a real powerhouse. thanks for sharing your journey.

The socks are great fun. Congratulations once again on the great review. I have one of the same questions as the reviewer, "where do you get the time?". Amazing.
