- Albuquerque, NM, United States
- I have been weaving Contemporay Fine Art Tapestries for over 20 years, raising a family in the lovely Southwest. I want to show process which usually gets a back seat to product and share the trials and tribulations as well as the joy and excitement of the creation of art out of a bunch of strings. How remarkable!

They are doing a membership drive and have great offers so if you haven't joined yet now's the time.
And the good news is I've found a venue for my NEW MATH show at my beloved TAPESTRY GALLERY in Madrid New Mexico.Called "NEW MATH PLUS it'll be from May 5th through June 16th with an opening day reception on Saturday May 5th , 1-4
With Judy's cookies and tea among other goodies!
There are so many reasons to go to Madrid, it's a beautiful drive from Albuquerque or Santa Fe,scenic route 14! From ABQ on the other side of the mountain, don't miss the Talking Talons Thrift store! One of my favorites! and in Madrid there are 2 wonderful antique and general cool stuff stores. One is owned by my Albuquerque neighbor, and is called The Real McCoy.It is just south of town and filled with all kinds of wonderful collectibles that Robby has collected . She also makes dulcimers so there are lots of musical instruments around. The Other store is called RED BONE, and it is in the middle of town, up the stairs on a boardwalk type platform. It is a visual feast of a consignment type antique collectible store. Theres's a downstairs too that's filled with vintage clothes. And before the reception you can eat at the magnificent little restaurant MAMA LISA'S Which is right across the street from RED BONE. The beet salad is always good and big enough to share, but their mexican fare is fab and everything tastes healthy and good for you. And the deserts are to die for, in fact it used to be called the NO PITY CAFE! They are all delicious but definitely try the Red Chile Chocolate Cake!
Now to a sneak peek at one of the NEW MATH pieces; This one is "SIERPINSKI GASKET FRACTAL, rusts"
The inverted white triangle begins the function , which is subtractive. So you "cut out" ( the black triangles) the triangular middles of every subsequent white triangle. The areas of the white triangles approach the infinitely small but never disappear!
But now I must, as I have the finishing work to do on a new piece. So many knots to tie!
