|Spring & Fall, 2013|
Six months later, I received information about a call for entry in Edmonton through the Focus on Fibre Art Association with the exact same theme. What are the odds? Theirs will be a juried show with categories and prizes. It happens in May 2014. The show I'll be curating will be a gallery exhibition for early 2015. My call for entry is officially released now. Here it is!

|I'm looking for art... : )|
In the mean time, I will be trying out for grants to expand this exhibit into a touring show. Wish me luck on that!! Artists with work in the show will be paid as per CARFAC fee schedules. Please pass the word if you know of a fibre artist whose work would be a terrific possibility! I can't say yes to everyone, and final decisions will be made based on variety of the collection as a whole, as well as execution and how my prairie heart reacts to each piece. Remember, I'm acting as curator and not as judge or jury. I will do my best! : ) Email me at Monika@MySweetPrairie.ca if you have further questions.
Okay. WHEW! Big steps!!
