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!
