Art Show at the Lucile Parker Gallery at William Carey University

My "Circle Dance" fiber art piece is pictured in the center of the invitation. This show is generally limited to watercolor, oil, and acrylics, so I am glad my fiber art is eligible. The opening reception is Tuesday, September 1, from 4:30-6:00 p.m., and the show runs through September 17.

Hi Martha, Yes, fun to get into an "art" show.. I am finding that if they put Mixed Media, I enter fiber/an art "quilt". I did have a piece that I framed with glass and it won a 3rd place ribbon. But have entered without framing So that was fun. Keep entering art shows, opportunity to teach about fiber art and related fiber arts. I am finding that sometimes when I mount a piece on a painted gallery wrap people seem to purchase them before a piece that is hanging with a sleeve.

Thanks, Vivian,
The opening reception was especially enjoyable because the juror was present and offered commentary on his selections. The show will be up for another week. If you want to see photos, the gallery has a Facebook page with excellent images: Best of Show was a large weaving that incorporated copper wire, paint, and bone pieces; other winners were sculpture, watercolor, photography. In other words, something for everyone! I was honored to have my two pieces selected to hang. They are on the left wall--Circle Dance and a Twisted Tree.
