Things are looking up!

After having three pieces rejected in the last 6 months, I was feeling a bit low.  I was hoping that it was just a leveling out after getting in so many shows and even selling a couple of pieces.  But then I got the news that two pieces were accepted into the
Placer Artist League Show in Auburn .
The show juror is Anita Wolff ( an oil and pastel painter.  It is really a compliment for her to have selected my fiber art.
The venue for the show is:
Exhibit Date:  June 19 - July 6, 2012
The Bernhard Winery - 291 Auburn-Folsom Rd
(to the left as you drive into the Auburn Fairground Parking).
Open Tuesday - Sunday from 11 AM to 4PM - Free Admission
Artist Reception - Saturday - June 30 at 1 PM to 3 PM 

Try to drop by and see the show and the museum.  It is a fun place.

Twelve by Twelve

12 by 12
Artful Women Collection

Twelve by Twelve is a collection of 12" square art pieces created by the Artful Women.  There are seven women artist in this new group with the goal of creating a body of work to show at galleries in the area.  It is all very exciting and inspiring.  It is amazing the work it takes to do shows.  We are learning together and encouraging each other on our creative paths.  The above work was developed by each of us doing 4 pieces, using whatever techniques used in our larger art.  They are so different but it is amazing how beautiful  and exciting they look.   The pieces can be arranged in any number of ways and shaped to any space available.
The artists in this group are Jo Hathcock, Lin Schiffner, Sandy Poteet, Gail Sims, Ann Sanderson, Joan Dyer, and me - Pam Berry.
