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.

I think it was Ben Franklin that said "We must all hang together, gentlemen,..." so I guess we'll hang together again! I haven't decided whether to go to the opening. I think I'll wait to see if other venues are arranged to decide. Maybe I'll see you there again.

Kathy, I really hope there is an earlier venue, as the Ohio opening reception is the same weekend as the Open Studio Tour, and I really want to do that again.....DC would be perfect as my grandbaby is there!
