ROCK RIVER ARTISTS OPEN STUDIO on JULY 15 & 16

“Woven Knowing”, torn paper weaving, 16 x 19″

On Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and 16, 2017, my studio is open from 10 AM through 6 PM. This year is our 25th Anniversary and we are 16 artists working in a wide range of mediums. This past year, I’ve been working with thread on fabric, torn paper weaving and linocut printmaking. Start here at Studio 9 -or at the Schoolhouse in South Newfane, VT, for a sampling of all the artists’ work and to pick up a map for your self-guided tour.

“Everyday Mermaid” Book Prototype is Complete
October 2015

California poet and friend Christina Isobel and I have been working on our book collaboration for several years. In responding visually to her poetry, I discovered a vibrant language of symbolic abstraction. Here across my studio wall, like a scroll, are my fabric panels overlaid with Christina’s poems. All 34 full spreads were then scanned, printed, trimmed, folded, and hand-built into a prototype of the book. We are looking for a publisher.
