I’m ready to start painting again, but wanted to post a few notes first.
A few weeks ago, I attended the SOFA (Sculptural Objects and Functional Art) expo in Chicago. Galleries from around the country represent their best fine craft artists in an exhilarating display of glass, ceramic, fiber, wood and metal work. It is so inspirational to see the exquisite work being done in the art world today. My head was spinning with inspiration for the whole day (and days thereafter!). If you have the opportunity to attend a SOFA show in New York, Chicago, or Santa Fe, take the time and be awed. (I’ve been to the one in Santa Fe…just as lovely, but a bit smaller).
On my way home from Chicago, I went to the opening of the “Walk in the Wild” exhibit at the Open Space Visitor’s Center in Albuquerque. The show was very well attended and the quilts were hung so well! I am honored that my quilt is a part of this show and really enjoyed seeing all the quilts. The exhibit will be shown through the end of the year.
The last update on the Studio Tour Quilts: I have donated the finished quilts to the ACD (Arts and Cultural District) to sell to support their efforts in promoting the visual arts. They are available for $300 each, about half of what I would charge for a similar piece. The full purchase price will go to the ACD… make your check payable to them. They are on display at Lois Duffy Art.
It’s now time for me to get back into the studio and settle in to some serious work…from the studio (almost there!)
