Welcome to my website. I will be keeping you apprised of my exhibitions, publications, and lectures on my Home Page. My Journal page features my current work in progress, images from recent travels, research snippets, and everyday reflections.
Autumn is here! Our rose bushes are going crazy with blooms, the nights are getting cooler and morning walks with our pup, Olive are invigorating. The Autumnal equinox marks a powerful time to honor the abundance in our lives. I am grateful for the many opportunities that have been provided for sharing my art this harvest season.
My solo show Infolding/Unfolding at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center opened on September 9-October 14th. My lecture in the gallery takes place on Saturday, September 24th at 11am. Many thanks to Suzanne Chessler for the lovely article on my work and show in the Jewish News. (article on my journal page) BIG Sculpture @ The Factory opened on Sept 16-18. This invitational features work by more than 50 artists. I have six sculptures in the show and I will be presenting a lecture on my work on Sunday, October 2nd at 2 pm. The show continues Saturdays and Sundays through October 22 or by appointment. And I’ll have two sculptures in the 7th biennial exhibit, ‘New Fibers 2016’. It opens to the public on October 26-December 7 at the University Gallery at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Mi . The reception to meet the artists is on Wednesday, November 2, 4:30-6:30pm. Hope to see you there!
I am happy to announce that Fox recently received the juror’s award in Threads: A Sampling of Fiber Art at Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Maryland. Roo was recently on display in The Dark Side, a terrific group exhibition at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center from May 6th-June 10th. And Water Rat was exhibited at the Detroit Artist Market’s Biennial All Media Exhibition in April.
In April I juried Blooms, Bugs, and Beasts (May exhibition opening) at the Detroit Scarab Club. And this coming November 2016, I will be in Maryland with the Potomac Fiber Arts Guild presenting a lecture on my Creative Process, a mini afternoon basketry workshop, followed by a 3-day extensive workshop on the ancient technique of coiled basketry. I am most grateful for the abundant gifts the universe has provided. This has been a fertile year for me artistically.
At the top of my list is my solo exhibition, Journeying, at N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art in Detroit. It opened to the public last June 12-August 22nd. The opening reception was amazing. On June 27th I presented a talk in the Rose Gallery.
Many thanks to Lee DeVito from the Detroit Metro Times for writing a comprehensive article about my work and the N’Namdi show in June 10th issue.
I’ll leave you with a quote from my mother, Fran Aaron’s memoir, “Being Alive at Ninety-Five”. She transitioned on September 11, 2015. Rule #3 for her secret formula for living into your nineties is, “Give your guardian angel a blessing for aiding your continued ability to remain physically and mentally healthy.”
Blessings and appreciation,
