I am happy to announce that I have three pieces in The National Fiber Art Exhibit in Santa Cruz!
It is at the Santa Cruz Art League and is their juried National Fiber Art Exhibit.
Three shoe pieces from my Marie Antoinette Series were chosen by juror Jean Cacicedo.
Here’s a sneak peek of one of my Antoinette shoe pieces at the exhibit…
The juror, Jean Cacicedo was a prime innovator in the Wearable Art Movement of the 70’s and is know for her unique wool felting techniques and art-to-wear wool coats. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the de Young Museum, San Francisco, Oakland Museum of California, Museum of Art and Design, NYC.
This is going to be an exciting exhibit. Richard Elliott, Senior Adjunct Professor and Chair of Textiles at California College of the Arts has a piece in this show and I saw some great pieces as I dropped off my work.
Here are the wall stands in production in my studio for the exhibit to hold my Antoinette Shoes.
The Exhibit runs through Sept 9th – and as a bonus the Santa Cruz Boardwalk is about ten minutes away – right down the street. I took this picture of the marble inlay carousel horse on the pavement in front of the carousel. I love all of the different types of marble that were used.
I look forward to seeing you and getting your thoughts on the show.
