Big Renee Harris fan! The first time I saw her work in person was wonderful. Glad you got to see such a concentration of beauty -- nothing better than world-class fine craft!

Oh yes -- and I love your thoughts on layers. Food for my thought. Thanks for such a lovely post, LuAnne!


Glad you enjoyed! This was indeed a world-class show and I must say I think your work would have fit in there perfectly, so boo to those past jurors. There were a number of "similar" (from my point of view) fiber-wearable artists and I'm assuming that's because some of them are show institutions. So mere institutions should not preclude expanding the fiber-decorative category, which was only half the size of wearable. Hope you will continue to consider it -- how fun would it be to come & see you there! I could be a booth groupie.

Renee Harris was one of the artists whose work I really wanted to see in person, and that helped me overcome my innate travel- aversion once again. Didn't get to meet her, she was out of the booth when we went through and then busy next time. And her piece I loved most was not in our budget this year, but someday...

As for the layers stuff, it was so unusual for me to even have such thoughts -- my reactions are usually more visual/tactile/emotional. Hopefully it will have a positive impact on my own processes as well as my appreciation of others.
