I have been heading down to Attleboro a lot lately, so much so that I have been considering renting an apartment there :).
All the trips have been for exciting activities - jurying the High Art exhibit at the Attleboro Arts Museum and leading workshops for my Birds of Poetry installation for the Attleboro Public Library. And recently I learned there are more wonderful reasons for me to visit Attleboro.
First, this summer I will be installing my Birds of Poetry in the atrium of the Attleboro library. With all my workshops we have over 100+ birds, all awaiting to take flight.
I recently lead a workshop with the VERY well behaved fifth graders from Robert J. Coelho Middle School. We all had a lot of fun!! and made MANY birds, and these birds have some special gold accents!!! & there are still more workshops to come :)
Then this weekend I learned that "womb wrap" (Uterus) got into the Attleboro Arts Museum's National Juried Exhibition, On the Threshold!!! This show was juried by Michele L'Heureux, whose work I have always admired ~ check out her work on her website.
This exhibit runs from July 14th - August 10th, with the opening reception on July 18th.
Then following On the Threshold is the Attleboro Arts Museum's 8 Visions 2012, and I am very honored to say that I am one of the 8 visions!!!
This is an extremely exciting opportunity!! It is a very competitive exhibit with three different jurying processes. I am happy to announce that I will be exhibiting with these 7 other very talented artists :
Patricia Berube – Cohasset, MA
Brenda Cirioni – Stow, MA
Susan Denniston – Scituate, MA
Sand T Kalloch – Malden, MA
Niva Shrestha – Franklin, MA
Mary L. Taylor – Marshfield Hills, MA
Felicia Touhey – Portsmouth, RI
(this is the first year that all women artist were chosen:)
We have already had our first meeting to meet each other and to learn about each other's work. Also during this meeting the director of the museum, Mim Fawcett, encouraged us to look to this show as an opportunity to experiment and really stretch ourselves!! I can't wait!!! I am already thinking about how I can 'play' with my scale of the dress form?!?!?
Just wish I didn't need to sleep :)
And on that note I must hit the sheets because tomorrow bring another day!
More to come about all these events, but for now good night
