“I am following the highway
down the river” *
to the Village Artisan’s Gallery where I will be sharing my work and process from one until four tomorrow.
from the web site:
Housed in a renovated 1875 brick church located in the picturesque historic village of Boiling Springs the gallery is nationally recognized as a treasury of American craftsmanship and artistry. Featuring the work of Pennsylvania artists we offer a wonderfully eclectic selection of fine craft & art created by more than two hundred American artists. Traditional and contemporary crafts such as blown glass, pottery, turned wood, wrought iron, hand woven apparel & jewelry are found along stunning fine art, children’s book illustrations, calligraphy, collages etc!
Honored to be selected Cumberland Valley’s 2011, 2012 & 2013 Best in the Valley Place to Shop, voted 2011 #1 Gallery and #1 Gift Shop on Central PA Magazine’s HOT LIST and chosen one of the 2011 NICHE TOP RETAILER AWARD winners. In 2005 the VILLAGE ARTISANS GALLERY was chosen the NICHE #2 Retailer of American Craft from over 700 galleries, retail and museum shops nominated by more than 18,000 professional craft artists in a nationwide poll.
AND it is just steps away from the midway point of the Appalachian Trail,
where these fellows will be most of the day~
I recently installed three quilts in the Tall Timbers series in the Penn State Library in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. When I began dyeing fabric for this large project
it was still scarf weather.
After making a wide range of colors
and sewing many, many hours
the works were completed and installed.
As a lifetime library devotee, it gives me great pleasure to know my works are hanging there!
