It’s been a bit crazy over the last few weeks because:
…and so am I!
I’ve had a wonderful opportunity to travel to Italy to hand-deliver my piece, “Pandemic Portrait,” for the upcoming show. My work will be part of the Surface and Depth show curated by the Society for Embroidered Work. The exhibition opens next week during Rome Art Week.
This show explores the concept of “surface” within embroidery. All the work chosen was from artists who are a part of the Society for Embroidered Work. I’m very flattered that my work was among those juried in, and I can’t wait to see the rest of the works in person! The artists are from all over the world, and many of them are creatives I have been following online for ages. It’s going to be a real treat to experience their works firsthand and not just through a screen.
As you can imagine, there has been a lot of preparing going on. I’ve been nervous that the trip would be cancelled last minute so I delayed in getting ready, leaving me with a long list that quite suddenly needed doing now. I’m nearing the end of it, thank goodness, because we leave this weekend!
One of the things I did for this trip was to finally have business cards made! The backs of the cards feature different works of art – and the images are much clearer than this picture shows. I’m proud to pass them out!
Well, with all of this travel and excitement and uncertain WiFi, I’ll be taking a break from writing blogs for the next couple of weeks. I will be posting on my Instagram stories during my trip, so be sure to follow me there!
