Show Updates for 2013

There is so much going on in the next few months, it's unbelievable!  For those of you who don't see the blog heading / sign up via email I thought I would make a housekeeping post just for you.

9th Annual Members' Show & Sale

Crazy as it might sound, I have art hanging at The Mendel - our 'anchor' / historical gallery right on the river in Saskatoon.  It's a fundraiser where the commission taken by the gallery sales go to purchasing pieces for the permanent collection.  I put in my priciest piece - 'Make a Wish' - the one with 2000+ dandelions gone to seed, stitched out in French Knots.  I also have a piece with silk ribbon reeds & cattails called 'Good Night'.  It's the one with the yellow sky.  The show & sale runs from Friday, Sept 13th to Sunday, Oct 6th, 2013.

Make A Wish, 2013 (sideways photo of work in progress...)

There's another annual group show coming up VERY soon.  I've been hoping to be in this for three years now, but have never had enough work on hand to set up a booth.  My smaller work will be at this one including postcards.  It is in about ten days.  Unfortunately, my awesome painting friend Nicki Ault will not be around for this one.  She's been a recent 'regular' at this show.  Click to view larger...  driving directions from Saskatoon are on the poster.  There will be a range of different media there (Zentangle illustrations to pottery and everything in between!)

organized by Judy Wood each year

I've stocked more Prairie Postcards in the Craft Council's shop on Broadway in Saskatoon. 


Dimensions 2013 comes to the gallery there (Affinity Gallery) soon as well!  The dates are November 15, 2013 to January 4, 2014.  The reception is at the end of the show on January 3rd.  It's a juried provincial biennial touring group exhibit of fine craft.  Whew - that's a mouthful.  'She's Blooming!' is in that one.  I saw the show in Regina this summer - I can't wait for it to be here!  It all feels surreal and terribly exciting.

detail of 'She's Blooming!', 2013 ...yes, sideways again.  : )

November 25 to December 28 is my 4th Annual solo show at The Centre Galleries.  Each year I have about a dozen+ threadpaintings for sale there.  This year will be more of the same... only better!  ; )

Winter Turns to Spring, 2013

Finally, good news!  We landed a title for the recent commission that is going to Ontario.  The new owners suggested it and I love it.

Steadfast, 2013.  Sold.

Much work to do to be ready for Agar's next week...  off & sewing!

The new title is perfect for that piece! And all those shows, on top of teaching...I know how you do it -- you are 20 years younger than I! ;-)
