Galerie Beaux-Arts des Amériques show on-line

I am so pleased to have had a piece juried into Still Life: Revisited, currently at the Galérie Beaux-Arts des Amériques. All forty pieces, representing a wide variety of media, are in a 16 x 16 format. Delighted to report that the piece sold!

There is often a concern among artists who work in fibre about whether or not to enter general calls for entry, whether our work will be considered alongside the more traditional media of oil and acrylic, even collage. My experience is that jurors often welcome fibre, seeing it as something fresh and different.

In fact, another show in which I'm currently involved, at Cornwall's TAG Gallery, awarded a first-place prize to a batik by Elaine Arkwright. This is encouraging to all of us who work in cloth.

Below are some photos I took on a quiet day in the gallery, mid-week.
