” Flower Garden”
dimensions : 16 inches by 20 inches
media: silk hand dyed with hand-crafted natural dyes, embellished with cotton, bamboo and silk thread, and accented with glass beads
Several weeks ago I posted about finishing ” Flower Garden “. It had been a crazy time finishing the piece before the submission date, to the point of finishing up the beading in the car as my husband drove to the West Coast and back again.
It turns out that it was well worth my while to go above and beyond to finish the piece in time. Last night I received an email indicating that “Flower Garden” had been accepted to be shown in the “Rooted in the Arts” exhibition. “Rooted in the Arts” is a juried fine art exhibition that is being shown in conjunction with the 2013 Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Distinguished Artists Awards. The exhibition will run from May 13th to June 22nd, 2013 at the Harris-Warke Gallery in Red Deer, Alberta.
