These four tapestries were all completed in the past six months and are all over the board in terms of approach. The two topographical tapestries were woven for a collaborative exhibit that includes members of Tapestry Artists of Puget Sound and Tapestry Weavers South. The exhibit, “NW x SE” is currently on display at the Gaston County Museum of Art in Dallas, NC and will be shown at the Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor beginning in mid Sept. “USGS Vaughn” is the topographic map of where I live here in Washington and “USGS Southern Pines Quadrant” is my grandmother’s home in Pinehurst NC.
“Marsh at Minter” was woven for Pacific Portals , ATA’s unjuried show in Longbeach this summer. It is an estuary that demands a visit when the salmon return in the fall.
The final piece is “Skokomish at Staircase”, the second in an ongoing series about Washington rivers. This was inspired by an early summer hike in the Olympic Mountains to sea the river in full flood.

    They are all wonderful! I look forward to seeing the one that will be in Pacific Portals. You have been very busy! Congratulations on getting these all done.

    I love the topographical tapestries. Katherine Harmon’s book “You Are Here,” full of artists’ maps, is one of my favorite sources of inspiration.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Kudos
