The month of August is your last chance to see The Handweaver's Guild of America's (HGA) annual exhibition, Small Expressions. This year, one of my "Catching the Moon" pieces is included in the traveling exhibit. It has already visited Mississippi Craft Center, Ridgeland, Mississippi. Now, the exhibit is at Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa. It will be there through September 6, 2009, so you have less than a month to catch it!
From what is shown on the web, it looks like it's a fabulous exhibition with many colorful works! Above left, you see the first place winner, titled Celebration Life, by Maximo Laura, of Lima, Peru. The winners are published on the HGA website. Congratulations to Maximo and the other winners!
My "Catching the Purple Moon" (right) is also part of the exhibit.
I can hardly wait until the entire exhibit is published in HGA's magazine, Shuttle, Spindle and Dyepot. If that is a publication you are not familiar with, you may want to check out their wonderful, high-tech online version, FREE on their website! Don't miss my work on page 20, from when it was in 2007's Small Expressions exhibit!
#throwbackthursday to this past February at the @johnccampbellfolkschool with @joannkellycatsos. In a little over a week I will be back there to teach a class myself. To say I am excite and nervous would be an understatement. . . . #basket #basketry #basketweaving #basketweavingworkshop #johnccampbellfolkschool #jccfs #johnccampbell #northcarolina #brasstown #brasstownnc #happyplace #tbt #blog
