The Wyoming Arts Council is holding its bi-annual Arts Summit in Cheyenne this year. Visual and performing artists from across the state will be attending the conference and the whole thing kicks-off with an Artwalk on Nov 7th from 5-8pm. My studio will be featuring work by fiber artist Do Palma. Do deals with a variety of subjects in her work including images that represent past and present social issues. Her powerful," Shadows of Conscious" series will be on display and Do will be present to talk about her work.
Along with Do's pieces, I will be unveiling my latest project, "Crazy- A Contemporary Quilt about Fashion's Pressing Problems." "Crazy," challenges viewers to think about where and who makes their clothes and what happens to them when they are discarded. Viewers are encouraged to be apart of the project by adding embroidery to the piece while enjoying the fun of a sewing bee style stitch-in.
