Chiaroscuro Self-PortraitI entered my first piece in an art show in quite a long time recently - the Blue Ridge Fiber Show in Asheville, NC.


Show information: 2012 Blue Ridge Fiber Show ...Into the Garden

"an international, biennial celebration of fiberarts"

October 2, 2012 - January 2, 2013

at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC

Sponsored by the Western North Carolina Fibers/Handweavers Guild, Inc.


I entered my Chiaroscuro Self-Portrait (pictured here in progress on the loom).


I just received word that I was awarded Second Place in Amateur Weaving in the decorative non-functional category!!!! I am so thrilled.  This wonderful information arrived today as I was nervously debating whether to enter another piece or two in a local juried art exhibit. (I think I might go ahead and take the risk.)

If you are going to be in the Asheville, NC area, please stop by the Arboretum and take a look at the show.  There are over 140 pieces of fiber art in the show ranging from professional to amateur work and woven work, felted work, garments, functional pieces, etc.
