The Transformation

I’m so pleased!  My hand-dyed piece, “The Transformation”, in the Focus on Fiber 2012 exhibit was sold at the 18 Hands Gallery on Friday.  I was provided with the contact information of the person who purchased my artwork, and I’m looking forward to an opportunity to meet her sometime soon!

Exhibition: “Focus on Fiber 2012″…Houston, Texas USA

The Houston Area Fiber Artists (HAFA) juried exhibit  “Focus on Fiber 2012″ will open this week in Houston, Texas USA.  My hand-dyed shawl, “The Transformation”, was juried into the show by Sally Sprout.

My cotton chiffon shawl underwent 3 phases of botanical dyework conducted in the U.S. and Trinidad, West Indies.  The botanical plants utilized included Ryukyu indigo (Ryukyu Ai) from my studio garden in Houston, TX USA and hundreds of fallen flowers from trees in the Queens Park Savannah in Trinidad, West Indies.  A sneak preview (photo) of the shawl is included in the exhibit invitation below.  We welcome your attendance at the reception and gallery show.

Exhibition: “The Art of Fiber” Exhibit Poster

I’m so, so pleased.  Yet, I am humbled too.  My Ryukyu Ai (indigo) dyed silk shawl was included on “The Art of Fiber” exhibit poster.

My shawl was created utilizing an ancient method of fermenting indigo leaves common to Okinawa.  I grow the Ryukyu Ai (indigo) in my studio dye garden.

I see that my silk shawl is in good company.  It’s located next to a wonderfully sculpted fiber fish.  What better place to be?

Exhibition: “The Art of Fiber”…Lorton, Virginia USA

Just in time for the holidays, The Workhouse Arts Center presents the exhibition, “The Art of Fiber” from November 23 – December 31, 2011.  The exhibit is a celebration of  “the beauty and creativity of the fiber arts”.

I am so happy that one of my hand-dyed shawls was juried into the exhibit by jurors Candace Edgerley (adjunct faculty member at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC and President of the Surface Design Association) and Trudy C. Van Dyke (independent curator and fine arts consultant).

I dedicate this showing of my Ryukyu Ai (indigo) dyed silk shawl to my fiber arts mentor and Obaa-san (grandmother), Nae Higa.
