Early in December I got a call from a friend about putting my work in an upcoming clay and fiber art exhibit in need of entries. And could I bring my pieces that day before 6 p.m. It was then about 3:30 in the afternoon.
One thing I have plenty of is quilts. One thing I have little of is quilts with hanging sleeves. I tend to sew them in for exhibits or for gifts, long after the quilts are made. So, I found two small quilts with hanging sleeves already on them and took them in for the Summit Artspace Thread & Mud exhibit by Artists of Rubber City.
The exhibit actually looks much nicer than I expected, with that short notice. I suspect it simply wasn’t well publicized. Certainly I hadn’t heard about it, even though I’m on the Artspace’s mailing list.
Here are my entries: (At The) Feet of Klee (center) and The Big Bang (right.) The latter is well lit so all the metallic threads I used glitter. Unfortunately, it’s not a photogenic quilt. Susan McClory’s Primary Waves is on the left.
Here are some other pieces in the show.
I wanted to have more showings of my work this year, which is why I said why not when this show came along. If I had had more time I would have chosen different quilts, which should be a lesson to me. Always sew a hanging sleeve on your work when it’s done.
