show time

I just returned from hanging my upcoming show at The Barn Swallow. Many long days have been spent in preparation and I still feel rushed, not quite done, and nervous. The show is called leaves and layers, and features art quilts, textile collages, and other wall hangings (some samples shown here). It will be up throughout the month of October and is in my favorite venue – an old barn just west of Charlottesville that is converted into a beautiful store and gallery. There is an artist reception on October 10, from 2 - 4 pm. I hope you will join me if you are in the area. I wish that all of you who live far, far away could share the fun as well...
