It's been an exciting week! Bike Art at the Dairy Center for the Arts, in Boulder, CO had openings both December 6th and 7th with over 800 attendees! This, despite single digit temps and power issues for many in the area! I was pleased to learn "Time Trials" had tied for a 1st place award at the show. The show, including works by 94 artists from 18 states, features over 130 works in a variety of media. It will continue on until January 17, 2014 and coincide with the USA Cyclo-Cross Championships.

Meanwhile, in CT, Sisters in Cloth opened their current exhibit, "Food for Thought" at the Guilford Library on December 7th. Photos of the exhibit are included on the Sisters' blog here and demonstrate the breadth of interpretation, from actual food, to, uh, well….my "Mirror, Mirror" and "Facemask". Each includes a blurb…..for thought. It's always a pleasure to be included in the Sisters' exhibits! Many thanks!
"Stockholm Winter" continues to travel with SAQA's "Seasonal Palette", currently at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky and looking ahead to the Festival Internacional de Patchwork e Arts Afins in Curitiba, Brazil in August 2014. This month, "Stockholm Winter" is included in the current Winter Fiber Arts Now gallery piece "Architecturally Speaking".
It's been a month with a lot of great opportunities and I am grateful for all of them and for my friends that encourage me and share the artistic journey with me. May each of you have a joyous holiday season and a creative, bountiful New Year!
