My weeklong trip to Washington DC and New York City is coming to an end, and I am still marveling at the Sacred Threads exhibit I saw near Dulles Airport. It has been set up, literally as a labyrinth. When you walk into the large room and begin to wind your way through the art, with meditative music in the background, you feel like you are entering an altered state. Congratulations to Lisa Ellis and Christine Adams for putting together such a high quality show.
If you live in the area, I urge you to get over there this week or by this weekend, before it is packed up and gone forever.
Here in New York, I went to see the Punk Fashion exhibit at the Met, and I've been working on the SAQA fundraiser collection "Urban Textures" at the Andover offices. We are sending out artwork to the factory and based on the results, will choose the final artists. So far the collection is coming together beautifully, and we are excited to see how this collection will raise money for SAQA.
I also had lunch at a private club with a quilt collector, then walked back through my old stomping grounds in the garment district, stopping to pick up some gold clasps in a costume trim shop. Looking at lots of beads, sequins and embroidery trims got my creative juices running, and I am anxious to get home to my studio.
Are you keeping cool in this super summer heat?
