The Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati and the Fitton Center for Creative Arts Season Launch

The Weavers Guild of Greater Cincinnati will have a group exhibit of juried works as part of the Fitton Center for Creative Arts 2017-2018 Season Launch!

As a member of the WGGC, I was thrilled to learn that six of my entries were chosen for this exhibit.  The “soft” opening will occur on August 5, the Season Launch Event, free and open to the public, will occur on August 18.  For more details keep an eye on the Fitton Center website at 




Resplendence #4 – Progress

May 15, 2017

Working steadily on another in my resplendence series.  The photos below show my workspace and the front and back of the piece.

In punch needle the work is done from the back often turning the front into quite a surprise.

There is some dimensional punching in this piece.  Dimensional punching can only be discerned from the front.

Accepted to Hamilton Current!

Great news!  Just received my letter from the Fitton Center for Creative Arts.  Both of my entries, “Random Colors, Random Thoughts #2” and “Random Colors, Random Thoughts #3” were juried into the upcoming exhibit, Hamilton Current.

Being juried into this show is quite an honor!

Join me at the opening reception.  It is free and open to the public and will celebrate the 48th Hamilton Current and Miami University Regionals Art Students on Saturday, April 29th, 5:00 – 7:00pm.

For a sneak peek “Random Colors, Random Thoughts #2” is one of the pieces that cycles through on my Home Page.  It’s the abstract in many shades of green.  The colors were chosen at random from my green floss stash.  The shapes were punched randomly without a drawing or color plan.  Not the way I usually work!
