This Week Is About Art Shows

'Creston Valley: Fruit and Berries Series' honoring the amazing capacity of our valley for growing food
This week sees me closing 2 art shows, one at the Library and one at Creston Card and Stationery. Sad as that may be for me, I am delighted to be a part of the Art Show, Core Matters: Farm and Food that will be opening this week at the Creston Chamber of Commerce.
Art Walk this summer was wonderful for me with sales and 3 commissions from people seeing my work around town. Thank you to the organizers Elaine Alfoldy and Eileen Hirota!

A successful show closing. Wonderful to be in a show with friends and hear comments like "Your work shows very well together."
As Art Walk is finished Sept 1, I will be taking down the display at Creston Card and Stationery of my Watercolour Paintings, Textile Art and Artisan Pillows. What a wonderful venue this has been for my textile work.

Nine artist will be showing including Elaine and Andy Alfoldy, Karen Arrowsmith, Ute Bachinski, Eileen Gidman, Eileen Hirota, Sandi Kunze, James McDowell, and Carol Schloss.  Below are a sample of my Textile Art Series honoring the amazing growing capacity of our valley.

Congratulations on your upcoming show at the Chamber. Love the mug rugs, I am especially thrilled with mine and I can't wait to surprise Ivor with his commissioned trout mug rug!
