Dimensions 2015



I just found out... Prairie City is heading off on a 2 year tour!  I'm so honoured to have my work selected for Dimensions again.  WOW.  I was away in Melfort during the SK Craft Council jurying and critique events, so I was not ablt to see which 35 craft pieces were selected.  I got my phone call notification while on the road during a bout of laryngitis.  lol  That was the most difficult conversation ever.  : )  The good news is I'll be able to see them all in Regina when they have their first exhibition.  The MacKenzie Art Gallery dates are May 23 - August 16, 2015.  In Sept/Oct they will be in Whitehorse!  : )

This is the piece that was selected.  Here are some images I took during the creation phase.  I did some free motion stitching on this, but by the time I was done, it was days of handwork accumulated.

Prairie City,  5"x15"

Prairie City has a new owner, so she won't be for sale on this tour.  She's Blooming (which toured with Dimensions 2013) is available and on exhibit in Melfort.

You can learn more about Dimensions 2015 here.

Have a great day, and congrats to the group!

Oh yes. When she asked to purchase, I told her I had reservations as I was hoping to enter this in Dimensions. She gave the go ahead and will be getting it once the tour is over.
