My Art Show

I am finally getting some pictures posted of my art show.  The opening was on May 11, 2012, at a local gallery run by the Tippecanoe Arts Feceration.  It was a busy night as it was a downtown gallery walk, so over 350 people attended the opening.  My show consisted of quilts that I have made using shibori techniques for dyeing all of the fabrics used, and paintings that I have done that are abstract, using oil and wax techniques.

Here are some pics of the gallery and me feeling very nervous right before the opening started.

Quilt of shibori dyed fabric titled "Late Afternoon"

Paintings and a quilt at the upper left.
The show also included a few pillows and hand dyed scarves

This painting was a favorite of viewers called "Hot Flash"  it sold fairly early in the evening.

Painting entitled "Passage"
Pieced quilt of hand dyed fabrics "Early Spring"  and 3 oil and wax paintings.

Another quilts of shibori dyed fabrics

This painting was also a favorite of viewers called "Summer Day"

The show ended on June 15, but it was a success.  I sold 6 paintings and 2 of my hand dyed scarves!  I was very happy with the response, especially since my oil and wax paintings were all new work.  And if you see any paintings or quilts you are interested in purchasing please email me.  Many are still available. 

Thanks to my daughter Kelly for all of the great pictures.  She worked very hard the day before and the night of the opening helping me with hanging things, and food, and pictures...  I really appreciate it Kelly!
