I am honored to be featured on their postcard.
I am very pleased to be the featured artist in Cindy Stephens' Artist Blog.
Check it out here.
"Elemental Woman" is included in the exhibit and catalog, "All Things Considered: Basketry in the 21st Century," sponsored by the National Basketry Organization. The exhibit is currently at the American Art Company in Tacoma, later traveling to Peters Valley in NJ, and the Society of Arts + Crafts in Boston.
I am thrilled to have my work featured in Anne Lee's and E. Ashely Rooney's new book,
Sculpture: Artistry in Fiber.
I am particularly honored that my work was selected for the title page.
It was a lovely day at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center here in Brattleboro, Vermont. It was a workshop for art educators, sharing basket skills that can continue to be shared. A special bonus was that we were surrounded by the paintings of Wolf Kahn. Special thanks to Linda Whelihan, Education Curator Extraordinaire, for helping to make this happen!
"For the past few years I have been working on projects averaging 1 ½-2 years to complete. These allow me to apply specific details of changing weather patterns to my art. I am fascinated by extreme weather variations that have become the new normal and how these changes can be expressed using color and shape while exposing odd temperature leaps. These are created as patterns intended to visualize and reveal concerns about the human experience in relation to climate change."
"For 'Weatherscape' I created a 101 color pallet and assigned each color a corresponding temperature. A day is represented by a hexagon carved into 24 sections for each hour and each hour is painted the corresponding temperature. A central hexagonal section is painted with the mean temperature of the day. Each day of every month is woven together like a quilt and suspended about 1/2” from the wall.
Monthly units fit into one another like a behive. Months are identified with plates divided into 3 sections: Colors on left are the months' low; right the months' high; center the months' mean temperature. Running along the bottom edge is the entire color pallet (think map legend), numbered with coordinating temperatures.
'Weatherscape' will be completed by late summer 2017. Photos show about 70% of the project."

Marilyn Keating creates remarkable stop motion videos using cut paper, created on an iPad. She also does stop-motion residencies with school children. The videos, one each of Marilyn's and one created by the children, may been seen on my personal and business Facebook pages.
There is always a work in progress in Marilyn Keating's Cantina at the South Jersey Museum of Curiosities.
The Summer issue of the fabulous Zoom magazine, from the Sunshine Coast of BC, Canada, features both our exhibit, "Beyond the Basics," as well as images from our Bias Plaiting workshop.
Thanks, Edmund Arceo, Designer, Photographer, and Publisher Extraordinaire.
