I totally adore the ladies in my local fiber arts group. I don't get to see them regularly due my kids schedules, so I really cherish the meetings that I do get to attend, and the exhibits that we put on together.
And we do have a wonderful new exhibit coming up in May at the Mahopac Public Library
in Mahopac NY. We have been exhibiting in their lovely third floor gallery for so many years now that it feels like home. Please join us for the opening reception of "We've Been Framed" on May 10th from 2 to 4PM. Everyone had to create an artwork that would fit into a frame. All frames where painted the same navy color to unify all the artwork. I had a preview at a meeting recently and it is a wonderful variety of styles, techniques and imagery!
Here's my work for this exhibit. I inadvertently seem to have gone back to St. Pete Lace
series and created this piece using thermofax screens
on color catcher sheets and thread painting. The screen printed imagery is from my photographs of many many wrought iron railings of St. Petersburg, Russia and the eloquent words of Alexander Pushkin
. And the thread painted man is an Atlant
who holds up the entrance to the Hermitage.

Hope to see many local friends at the exhibit! Thank you!
