Busy Busy Busy!

Silk Painting Workshop at Allied Arts Gallery At The Park It has been an exciting and fun year so far!!  After attending the Fiber Fusion Show opening (where I won Best Use of Mixed Media!!), I went back to Richland the next weekend and taught 2 workshops... Intro to Silk Painting and Resisting Your Dyes with an Ice Dyeing Kicker. Resisting Dyes/Ice Dyeing Workshop at Allied Arts Gallery At The Park - yes it was messy, but fun!!! You can see we were making quite the mess in the Resists (Shibori) class!! Thank you to all the wonderful ladies that took my workshops!!! You made the workshops so much fun!!!! The next week was graduation for the Transition students at the ACT Program where I have a muggle job as a vocational specialist and was responsible for the slideshow/movie presentation. I am SO proud of these young people!!!! And then the next weekend I got to demo Silk Painting at the Whidbey Island Garden Tour.  I was located at the HalyRune

Fiber Fusion Opening Reception

Me and A Resinable Trio with my certificate and prize I have to say I'm feeling a bit gob-smacked!  I went to the Fiber Fusion opening today at Gallery At The Park in Richland, WA and ended up winning Golden Acrylic's Best Use of Mixed Media prize for A Resinable Trio !! It is such an honor just to be juried into the show - but to receive an award as well.... wow!!   Especially in light of the INCREDIBLE pieces I saw in the show today!  The venue is fantastic and the show is incredibly well-curated!! My bowls are in the center,  The egg-shape entitled The Birth of the Grid (to the right of my bowls) won the Juror's Choice award!  It's amazing! Our show even made the news again! Here's the link to the Tri-cities NBC Affiliate (KNDO/KNDU) piece they did about our show (my bowls are shown near the beginning of the piece and then I'm shown accepting my award towards the end).
