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.
Summer is in full swing. The solstice was especially powerful as it was accompanied by a full moon. A perfect time for planting new seeds in our lives. I am enjoying the balmy weather, early morning walks with Olive, our new pup, and long days in the studio.
I am getting excited about my up-coming September 2016 solo show Infolding/Unfolding at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center (September 9-October 14th) And I will have several sculptures in BIG Sculpture @ The Factory on Sept 16-18. This invitational, takes place at 333 Midland in Highland Park and features work by more than 50 artists. I will be presenting a lecture on my work on Sunday, October 2nd at 2 pm. The show will continue Saturdays and Sundays through October 22 or by appointment.
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,
