Such an Honor…

…to have my tapestry accepted in the American Tapestry Biennial 9. The exhibit will run from October 19 – December 16, 2012, at the Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio. The Dairy Barn is host to the renowned Quilt National.

I hope to attend the opening reception, but it’s a little too soon to make definite plans.

Austin_OnTheEdgeOfChaos_DetailW I like to think that visitors to ATB9 will be seeing my tapestry for the first time, so I will only show you this little detail. Enough to see that there is text, cursive text….remind me not to do that again!

It’s part of the Chaos series, and the title is “On the Edge of Chaos.” You can see the rest of the series on a previous blog post here.

For a list of all the artists, and a few images, check the American Tapestry Alliance website.

One Week Down only 51 to Go!

2012Week1Here’s the first week of my 2012 tapestry diary. For the first month I plan to keep it simple, play around with colors, yarns, patterns etc.

2012Week1detailI’ve been thinking about making bluish halos around the black and white images in my tapestries, so I’ll explore how that might work.
