North Charleston Arts Fest
In May of 2023, I exhibited two pieces of fiber art in the North Charleston Arts Fest for the first time. It was a wonderful experience to be part of the incredible body of work on display in the Palmetto Hands craft exhibit. One of my favorite works to date, the tapestry piece "The Magic Door," was purchased.
Touch & See Traveling Exhibit
In May 2023, the Charleston County Public Library presented an art experience for visually impaired patrons, with an exhibition of art created to be experienced through touch. Each piece was accompanied by an audio recording of the artist explaining the inspiration for the piece. In October 2023, the exhibit was brought from the Hurd/St. Andrews library to the main branch of the library downtown on Calhoun Street.
This weaving, titled "Elsa," combines velvety soft loops, tightly woven rows, and strings of plastic "crystals" to create a variety of dense textures. The icy-cool colors and crystalline accents prompted me to name this piece after the beloved Disney ice queen.
