One of the reasons I call myself a textile artist is I firmly believe if we say it often enough and loud enough, someone in the fine art world will take notice.
I am just back from the opening reception of a juried exhibit “Fire & Ice” at the Petaluma Art Center.
My work Upheaval # 7 was the ONLY textile in the entire exhibit. And it looked like it belonged there amongst all the other ‘fine art.’ The exhibit is very well displayed and includes an interesting variety of beautiful art. I also enjoyed schmoozing with two of the other artists; and had my knees not been screaming I would still be there.
There was an additional exhibit of funeria urns. Now that is something I never thought about…there were exquisite. I was torn between those covered with lichen made of clay and the old fashioned gumball machine.
