It’s Starting Off As a Great Art Year

It hit me in the shower last night that this is already starting off to be a very good year for my art. It started with the letter below and I was jumping for joy:

“I am pleased to inform you that curator Rana Edgar selected your entry for inclusion in the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ 2017-2018 Artists Registry. Work by selected artists will be uploaded to the website ( by February 7, 2017. Congratulations on this honor and best wishes for your continued success!” 

I juried with all new work that you can see on my Gallery page on this site HERE

Then Susanne M Jones notified me that both of my quilts for HERstory, a celebration of strong women, were accepted as 2 of the 108 (I think)  pieces. To make it even better, a second notification came that one of my pieces will be part of the exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX. Now that’s a double yippee skippee!

The fourth piece of good news for my art is that my studio will be on the Art Odyssey studio tours in May. I have a lot of catching up to do with natural dyeing after the holidays.

So you can see I am over the moon. This list of acceptances would be great for the whole year but it’s only early February!

  1. Wowsa-quadruple congratulations on ALLLLL of that Janice! And it’s all those years before that came together to make this moment. Bask in the glory!

  2. Congrats for all the good news! So cool to see your work in so many different places. I’ll keep my eyes open if I make it to Houston this year.
