In my head I have at least 5 separate blogs that I was hoping to post but for now I am going to do a quik debriefing and hope to follow up with more detail a little later.
|detail from 'ball gown'|
As my last post mentioned, this has been a wonderfully full month for my work. I have pieces in many venues, from Cambridge to Worcester and some places in between.
Last evening I gallery sat at the Fountain Street Fine Art gallery, Framingham, MA where the show is Present Company. This is a salon show of members' work. I am exhibiting Treacherous and Do they know it is Christmas?? It is a rich show ~ the owners of FSFA, Marie Craig and Cheri Clinton always hang an exquisite show!!!
I also have delivered more dresscards to Artisans Way in Concord, MA. I am so excited that my dresscards are finding homes ~ I love the combination of the quotes and the dresses. And since I can never make anything the same way! I am now incorporating papers that I make/design as well as the origami paper. I am very happy with how these have turned out and hope to expand on this idea.
In Attleboro, Emily, or the Dress of Etiquette, is holding court at the Attleboro Arts Museum, for their member show! The opening reception was quite crowded (always nice to see) and I was pleasantly surprised when Emily receive a merit award.
At the Sprinkler Factory, Worcester, MA there are two other dresses holding court, Provocative & Black Widow for the No Theme, No Limit show. Love the gallery space!!!
And the other main project that has been demanding my time is a commissioned dress, made for the interior design store, Shafer O'Neil, in Wellesley, MA. They asked for the holiday dress that highlighted their collection of vintage Christmas ornaments. This is the first full-sized sculptural dress that I have happily completed in a long time, so there many aspects of this piece to celebrate.

I hope to elaborate further about 'ball gown' in a later post, but for now my studio is beckoning so . . .
