The joy and pain of juried shows...

I entered two pieces into a juried show this spring.  Actually, I had a stack of shows I was going to enter--I think 5.  The Durango show was the only one I actually entered... largely because I'm going to the IWC conference and thought it would be most excellent if I got lucky enough to get into Fiber Celebrated a second time.  Both pieces were accepted.  Thank you to the jurying gods for that one!  I'm kind of a neophyte when it comes to juried shows and also when it comes to fancier get togethers involving the "art crowd."  Fortunately, fiber artists seem to be a little less "art crowd" people than some of the folks I've met in Santa Fe... and it is kind of fun to see my pieces hanging in different places.

  2. Congrats, Rebecca! Wow, the tapestry bloggers will be well represented at the exhibit with works by you, Kathy Spoering, Kathe Todd-Hooker, Jan Austin, & myself! It will be so exciting to see all of our works displayed in the same exhibit.

    I'm so happy to hear that you're coming to IWC... are you taking Kathe's workshop?

  3. I definitely am taking to Kathe's workshop! Still have to figure out if I can bring my little floor loom as I heard something about frame looms, but that can be figured out later I suppose.
    See you there!

  4. Congrats on the acceptance! I'm sure the crowd in Sante Fe does have it's own culture and i agree weavers seem to be more down to earth. Congrats again!
