Both "Movement in Squares" and "Current" are large wall pieces. They literally seem to move before your eyes.
National Museum of Scotland
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.
The National Gallery - London
"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.
"Connections" is open!
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.

Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a beautiful city in north central Laos. Each morning, hundreds of monks walk through the streets collecting alms.
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Our guide told us that Siem Reap is a city with ½ million people and 6 traffic lights. Located nearby, Angkor Wat, a Hindu temple and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest religious monument in the world.
A city of 8 million people and 5 million motorbikes. Crossing any street was a challenge; we were told to just start and keep on walking.
Halong Bay, Vietnam
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Halong Bay has over 2000 limestone islands, rising spectacularly from the water.

The Kentucky Musuem
The Kentucky Museum, on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, is a gem of a museum. Brent Bjorkman is the Director extraordinaire. The current exhibit, up through the end of June, is "A Culture Carried," about the 6,000 Bosnians who live in Bowling Green. You can learn more about it here. It is a moving exhibit, worth a visit in person or on-line.
The Fuller Craft Museum, in Brockton, MA, does road trips. This week a busload of people journeyed to Brattleboro. My studio was included on their tour. It was an exciting few hours, a craft show in my own studio, with great conversations.
