About Me

My photo
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!

Happy Belated New Year!

I am sooo behind in my Blogging but not in my Weaving!!!
Half of this blog entry disappeared. Murphy's law when you have an appointment to get to. But the upshot is there were many ups and downs  in 2012 .
2 galleries closed , I found 3 more. An article was cancelled I got it back and had 2 interviews and the story on my math plus show at the Tapestry gallery http://www.tapgal.com/ in madrid NM was fantastic
 In my scrambling I got a solo show Nov 23- Jan 2 2013in Santa Fe and they did a lovely article on it in the santa Fe Journal
and here is  a few of the show at Marigold Arts.

I also joined a co op Gallery in my scrambling, the Corrales Bosque Gallery http://www.corralesbosquegallery.com/Gallery_website/Home.html
Here is a pic of the gallery
See my tapestries at the back.
They are a great group of people and many I have known for years  but only see at shows so this is turning out nicely and Led to the last bit of great synchronicity of 2012! A good friend ,who I also can see more of, has her pottery studio next door to the Corralles Bosque Gallery. During conversation I said I was looking for a new gallery. She told me she was at the Weyrich Gallery http://www.weyrichgallery.com/  in ABQ and I said I might be interested. She kindly mentioned this to the Gallery owner who was also interested and the up shot is I will be showing my tapestries there AND was offered a SOLO SHOW . My show "FENG SHUI PLUS" , which will featured my Feng Shui Tapestries as well as the Math( the plus, get it?) And the Fractured squares, will open with a reception on Feb 1st 5-8;30 and run thru feb. AND there will be an article ( I'm off to an interview after I finish here) in Th ABQ Journal about the Show. I believe this gallery is a great fir as the owner is a Feng Shui practitioner as well as doing Reiki and tea ceremonies. All fun stuff!
  I did the Weems Art Fest again this year and though I didn't win my 3rd Best of Show award I did sell a lot , so it was very successful.
 Another Fun thing that happened from a 2012 experience, ( I think from the Scientific American slide show and Bridges Art/ Math Show) was that i was contacted by Princeton University Press to review a New book on Geometry and Art.I'b 1/5 of the way through it and I get paid in books!!!
Here is a recent on the loom pic of 3 little pieces for my solo show
And now I must fly to my interview, Help an apprentice on her loom at her house and then,1 more piece for my Feng shui plus Show as I go
