My Petrified Forest tapestries have found their way into a wonderful show in Athens, GA this summer. Time Warp... and Weft. Woven Works is a show at Lyndon House Arts Center which is open until July 29th.
Tommye Scanlin, Janette Meetze, Janet Austin, Geri Forkner, and Kathy Spoering are the main force behind this show. They have been doing time-based weaving for many years and have displayed these works together several times recently. I'm so happy they have asked me to be part of the Lyndon House show with my artist-in-residence tapestries.
I have one piece in the show--all 27 of my little Petrified Forest tapestries (see my blog post about them HERE) displayed together with a little book describing their influence.
Janette Meetze's tapestry diary from 2014 was in the American Tapestry Alliance's international juried show, ATB11 this year. I found her approach enchanting. In each month she build up curved hill-like structures for each day, making a vertical column for the month.
Kathy's calendar tapestries are wonderful. They are each 18 x 18 inches. I've seen a few of them in person. The Dog Days of Summer (August) I saw in years ago in a juried show at Intermountain Weaver's Conference and again in American Tapestry Biennial 9. October was in American Tapestry Biennial 10. She had a calendar printed of all of them for 2017 and I have been enjoying it all year so far.
And as a teaser for the future, here is an image of Tommye Scanlin's 2017 tapestry diary being woven while she was teaching at Penland in April.
