Hands Across Missouri 2018

Hi folks,

I have two pieces on display in the 2018 Hands Across Missouri Exhibit in Chillicothe, Missouri. This is a juried exhibit put together by The Best of Missouri Hands. I participated in this exhibit last year and am excited to be included again this time around.

My pieces include The Universe Favors Spheres:

And Marigold Merriment:

These pieces look really different from each other, and they are, but they also represent everything I love when I make art. I enjoy bright colors and high contrast and weirdo fluffy, glitzy yarns. I also enjoy dyeing wool with things from my garden and getting the subtle golden hues that come from nature. Basically, I am all over the place, and that is ok with me. Also, I made both of these pieces while we were in the upheaval of selling the house. I’m happy to have produced things during that stressful time.

Hands Across Missouri runs through August 30, 2018. The exhibit is at the Cultural Corner Gallery in Chillicothe, MO:

Cultural Corner Art Guild & Gallery
424 Locust Street
Chillicothe, MO 64601
(660) 240-5022

Hours:
Tuesday through Friday: 10 AM – 4 PM
Saturday: 10 AM – 2 PM
Closed Sunday and Monday
Free and Open to the Public

There will be a closing reception from 5 – 8 PM on Thursday, August 30. The reception is free so stop by if you are in the area!

Until next time,
Annie

Hands Across Missouri Exhibit

Hi folks,

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:

Cultural Corner Art Guild & Gallery
424 Locust Street
Chillicothe, MO 64601

Hours:
Tuesday through Friday: 10 AM – 4 PM
Saturday: 10 AM – 2 PM
Closed Sunday and Monday

There will be an opening reception on June 2 from 6 PM to 9 PM. The reception is free and open to the public.

Until next time,
Annie
