New show at the Johnsburg Library, North Creek NY

This is  my second library show in a row this year, and will be up until January 31st. I like showing my work at a library. Lots of people get to see it, and the setting is less intimidating than a gallery.

I am sharing the space with Jane Feldblum, who agreed to exhibit her beautiful knotted cotton and linen art at the library with me.   I first met Jane 10 years ago when she was giving chair massages at a winter party mutual friends put on every February. During my massage I learned that Jane had been an art teacher in Albany before pursuing her education as a massage therapist. Jane has made art in several different media, but it is her fiber work using knotted cotton and linen that sparked my interest.  Her pieces are small, and made from hundreds (maybe thousands) of knots. She has also used copper wire in her work, which of course looks great with my DSC01543woven copper!

It is always exciting to discover how the pieces “talk” to each other (a comment from my friend Jeanne)
during a shared show. Jane’s and my art look great together, and are having a lively conversation. If you live in the area, I hope you can drop by to see/hear it!
