Week LInk Post - 2




First up, Cas Holmes - and an interview with her at World of Threads.  When I was experimenting with surface design, I made all these cool things - but then didn't know what to do with them. Ms Holmes certainly does!

If I were to be a surface designer, rather than whatever it is I am now (lol) I would hope that one day my art would be as incredible as hers.




This review called "Selected Secrets From A Disillusioned Generation" by Christine Shan Shan Hou, of a show called Rituals of Rented Island: Object Theater, Loft Performance, and The New Psychodrama—Manhattan, 1970–1980, at the Whitney Museum of Art, not only sounds like a "must see" show if you're in the area, but the review itself offers insight into contemporary art. Excellent writing on the part of Ms Shan Shan Hou.



And Terry Jarrard-Dimond talks about juried shows again. At this point in my career, juried shows are a must - later, hopefully not - but I always love reading about them, and Terry offers insight with her experience and whys and wherefores.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi, Kit. Glad I found a moment, finally, to stop by (another artist said I should quit the teaching job--she may be right). I'm really liking your small golden pieces--very interesting experiments. A new direction for the new year, maybe? As always your references to others' work are excellent. Thanks for doing the research, and for stopping by and commenting. Have a happy holiday season and may the new year bring you lots of stitching and artistic adventures!
best, nadia
