A little mistake.

Just a note....The Coast said I am having a  "meet the artist"  at the Mary Black Gallery today..but I am afraid that was an error...I am at home being a Mom today..my apologies. :(
On another note...I had a great chat with Elissa Barnard about "Surfing the Ironing Board" so expect to see a write up in Local Xpress this week.

Terroir...A Nova Scotia Survey at the AGNS

I have a little story to tell.

There was a call for submissions put out by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (AGNS) last fall....and...I had never seen an open call for submissions put out by the AGNS..so...I thought.."YES!...I need to try for this"...because the AGNS to me is like. ..it's like...well...when I walk into the AGNS it feels like I am walking into a church....a sacred place...a place where I am going to see something that is going to make me feel..or think about something in a different way...it's powerful stuff.

 Soo...getting back to my little story...my submission was accepted. To say I did a happy dance is a bit of an understatement....29  artists living and working in NS  are represented in Terroir. We often talk about Nova Scotia..have-not province...culture of defeat...but what are artists saying about the province...what is their perspective....this is a show to see.

Sweet email.

I got this really sweet email and I got permission to share it with you...it really made my day.

My fiancee and I chanced upon your work at the Mary E. Black galley on our last day in Halifax, a few short hours before our flight back to the UK.

We were absolutely bowled over by your rugs, beautiful, delightful things.

We have the same broad technique over in the North East UK where they are known as 'proggy mats', but we've never seen anything like your rendering of Judy and her life and travails.

Stunning and remarkable, the final highlight of many during our visit to Nova Scotia,

Review of "Surfing the Ironing Board"

Steven Rhude did a very cool thing and did a write-up of "Surfing the Ironing Board". The Chronicle Herald may be "tits up" for the time being but life goes on..people are still making art in the province and people are still going to write about it.... one way or another.
