With the recent rains from Irene and Lee and the age (and permeability) of our foundation, we've decided that perhaps the basement is NOT the best place for my studio. We are now working on some other options for a creative space that will work for a longarm quilting machine, sewing and cutting tables, dyeing fabric, beading, garment design, and a few other things!
In the meantime, I spent this last Saturday at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake with my fellow ARTAA (Adirondack Regional Textile Artists' Alliance) members for the museum's annual festival celebrating the fiber arts. The theme for our display challenge was "Bugs" and my entry is below: The Renaissance Fly. As part of the curatorial staff working in a fine arts museum (The Hyde Collection), I thought I should add an art historical twist to my piece.
