I have been paralyzed since i entered this and two other pieces for the “Materialities” exhibit, and/or catalogue. I’ve done only a wee bit of stitching in the last month, a very wee bit, as i can’t seem to focus and do anything. I received an email today from the SDA executive director and am very very pleased to say that “How the Light Bends” was accepted for the 2015 Surface Design Association “Materialities: Contemporary Textile Arts” catalogue.
I have to admit reading the first email that i had not been accepted into the exhibition was a bit disappointing, in fact honestly, i was devastated until i opened this particular email…and the catalogue will be around longer than the exhibit :) :) :)
Again, this piece is 21×26, ecoprinted and rusted cottons, with fabric manipulation and every embroidery stitch worked by hand.
Receiving this news was wonderful, and maybe the needles will come out again soon.
