An invitational exhibit of 12 contemporary artists working in fiber will be at the Jamestown Arts Center in Rhode Island from March 9 - April 28. I've been working hard on producing something a little different for this show: freeform machine embroidered wall sculpture. This new work grows out of my recent fascination with woven pleats. I've continued working with folds, just on a somewhat larger scale. The piece pictured above is one in a series of three pieces, entitled "Above + Below" and measures roughly 20 x 20" x 5". I layered heavy linen and buckram fabric with acrylic paint and machine stitching to create a luminous surface. More pictures coming soon!
If you happen to be in the area, the opening is on March 9 from 6-8 pm and the show runs until April 28. Gallery hours at the Jamestown Arts Center are Weds - Sat 10 - 2
