Two of my Grave Rubbing Art Quilts have just been accepted into the National Juried Quilt Exhibit at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center (DVAEC) located in historic downtown Frederick, Maryland. The show runs from September 3 - 25, 2011 and includes a reception from 3-5 PM on September 3.

Also ... my installation of free motion embroidered wedding veils, I Do / I Don't, were invited to be part of an exhibit called "Fashion and the Female" at the Arts Center, Greenwood, SC. August 1 - 27, 2011. I've been to this location and it is very different from the ornate room in which I mounted it this past spring. The Arts Center is in a former bank ... with high ceilings and flooded with soft light ... and with an impressive view from the board lobby area into the gallery space ... very open, very clean and elegantly formal. I am very excited to see photos ... because I'm not mounting it! The staff is probably busy ironing and stringing up the veils and ribbons right now! What a thrill!

Yesterday my window installation, Ophelia, at the Tapps Center for the Arts was dismantled. The rented, porcelain bathtub went back to Chic Antiques. The artificial cemetery flowers were bagged. Today I apply Kilz to the "I Love You Hamlet" suicide note. It is a little sad to take such pieces down ... so I signed up to do another window installation next October! I need another project like a whole in the head ... but ... why not!

I love the way you fill all those holes in your head!!!
Bravo, I bow to you! You are Artist Extraordinaire and deserve all these wonderful venues for your extraordinary pieces! I just wish I lived near you so I could go in person to see them all.
