I especially love having my pieces juried into shows that are open to every type of art. I really like the fact that fiber art is being juried into all-media shows. The Mid-States Craft Exhibition includes sculpture, jewelry, painting, woodworking, ceramics, metalwork, and more. Three of my pieces have been chosen for the Mid-States Craft Exhibition at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science in Evansville, Indiana, (one at a previous exhibit and two for the exhibit occurring January 17-March 6, 2016).
"Zen" made it into a previous exhibit.
"Zen" has LOTS of hand stitching. In the detail shot, you can see the many French knots, stem stitch, and satin stitch embroidery that make up a big section of the piece. Zen measures 24" X 30".
These next two pieces are in the current Mid-States exhibit.
I'm excited, too, that I have some work in Jane Dunnewold's latest book called Creative Strength Training due out in June. You can find more information about it here. I'm not sure which pieces actually made it into the book (since it is on preorder), but I'm pretty sure "Spike" made it in.
