I am going to have two pieces in the upcoming Hands Across Missouri Exhibit in Chillicothe, Missouri. This is a juried exhibit put together by the Missouri Artisans Association/The Best of Missouri Hands. I’m taking my pieces to Chillicothe tomorrow, and I might be just a little excited to be in my first juried show.
My pieces include Bulldog Landmines, which I wrote about when it was included in the 12x12xMoFA exhibit last year:
My second piece is one I finished a couple of months ago. This is one is called Waste Not Want Not:
I originally conceived this piece as a rug, but for display purposes, it hangs on the wall. I used numerous bits and bobs of yarn leftover from past projects for this piece. All of those scarps can turn into something big (around 3 feet across) when you put them all together. This piece also reminds me of the rag rugs my grandma had at her house (a lot of grandmas had those rugs).
Hands Across Missouri opens June 2, 2017 and runs through July 7, 2017. The exhibit will be at the Cultural Corner Gallery in Chillicothe, MO:

Until next time,
