Seed Play on Exhibit in Chapel Hill NC at the NC Botanical Gardens

Beauty of a Berry 24" x 24"

Eighteen pieces from my series, Seed Play, are in a solo exhibit at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens in Chapel Hill NC. This is such a delightful exhibition gallery in the Education Center specifically dedicated to botanical art. The exhibition is open to the public and free, although donations are welcome. The exhibition runs through February 26.

I have both large and a selection of small pieces in the exhibition.

They have a lovely gift shop that is well stocked for the garden lover. They also have a collection of quilts done specially for the Education Center and wonderful outdoor sculpture and art.

Please let me know if you can see the exhibit. Would love some feedback on it.

Fiber for A Cause

Packet one with Sue Benner fabric Packet 2 with Lunn Fabric shibori and Els van Baarle fabrics

Virginia Spiegel is at it again, raising money for the American Cancer Society for cancer research. I have contributed two packets that donators will have the chance to either select (Day One) or be randomly selected to receive (Day Two).

Thought my readers might want to see a sneak preview of my packets. I went into my stash of very special fabrics and embellishments and pulled together two packets of color coordinated "stuff" from hand dyed and painted silk fabric from Sue Benner to some hand dyed cheese cloth from Els van Baarle and a scrap of Lunn Fabric double dyed shibori. Both contain silk cocoons and a silk rod to play with.

Pop on over to Foto Fiber to see how the donation process and your chance to select one of great art works and packets works. Click here.
