Both "Movement in Squares" and "Current" are large wall pieces. They literally seem to move before your eyes.
Last year, the National Museum of Scotland, in Edinburgh, acquired my piece "Shelter" for their World Cultures Gallery. Today I visited. I am so very chuffed (proud) and pleased.
What a treat to join Sally Roach and Janice Brooklyn, both UK basket makers, to see Lois Walpole's exhibition at the Broadway Gallery in Letchworth Garden City, UK.
Some of Lois' words: "My work has always been about the wasted potential of materials that we regard as having no further use. Protecting the environment is one of the message that I hope the work conveys, but it also questions our attitude to consumerism and what makes us decide what is rubbish."
"Plastic Entanglements: Ecology, Aesthetics, Materials" is at the Smith College Museum of Art, in Northampton, MA, through July 28. It is worth a visit. It is a visual reminder of what we are doing to our planet.
Elayne Clift has written a beautiful article about my collaborative work with Deidre Scherer. It appears in the March/April 2019 issue of "Artscope Magazine," New England's Premier Culture Magazine.
After working together for more than a year, Deidre Scherer and I have created 12 vessels for "Connections," an exhibition that opened yesterday at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center. These vessels are "representative of the character the human body gains with experience and time."
Many thanks to those of you who came to see our work, and to talk to us about it. It will be up through June 16.

"Shelter" has a new home.
It has been acquired by the Department of World Cultures, at the National Museums Scotland, in Edinburgh.
I am so pleased.
"Standing in Strength" has gotten a lot of press these days!
This grouping is included in Fantastic Fibers 2018 at the Yeiser Art Center
in Paducah, Kentucky. The image was used on their show postcard
and in the "iList Western Kentucky" article.
It was also featured in the March 7 edition of Hand/Eye Magazine.
