Unraveled: 7 threads

This Friday, July 13th is the opening reception for a group exhibit I have work in at the Artery in Davis, California with Martha Wolfe, Marjan Kluepfel, Bernita Dodge, Louise Schiele, Debra Hosler, and Marjorie McWilliams. The exhibit will be up through the month of July.

Phil helped me prepare by building 11 gorgeous floater frames for my canvas paintings.

It was a labor of love for sure. He had never made frames before, but got back into wood-working specifically because he had wanted to make frames to replace many of his own that were beginning to look worse for wear. My exhibit was just the incentive he needed to start making them.

We were glueing, and brushing danish oil on the frames the day before attaching the artwork and preparing them for hanging.

I love how the frames took on a lovely golden hue after applying the danish oil.

It’s amazing how hard it is to figure out where to start when hanging a show. Does one hang work by artist, type or  color? Ultimately color won out and we decided it would look best to have the various types of work mixed together, but organized by color as you move through out the room.

The Artery is a coop gallery that Marjan, and now Martha, both belong to. I would love to apply to be a member of the gallery as well, if and when I start to teach a bit less and have more time to create work.


This is how the exhibit looks as you enter.

It’s such a nice mix of art quilts, painted silk, felting, hand-dyed wearables and painted canvas.

If you happen to be in the area we’d love to see you at the reception Friday night.

Keep creating,
