SAILposter copy

This is the first of a series of embroidered sails. They are 12 feet (4m) tall. I'm hard at work on the second set but it's slow going. The series is about mariners' deep knowledge and connection to place.....photo E. A. Clarke

Hi Bettina,
Thanks for the information about your show. How long will it be up? I have friends in BC that are getting impatient for me to visit. It would be great to get to see your work in person.
Cheers,
Kathleen

Oh yes, about the frames....One day I was driving down a country road and saw a farm house with a free sign on a bunch of frames. The minute I saw the frames I knew i wanted to experiment with them...and I have been ever since..

Hi, Bettina!
I absolutely love going to UBC and find it one of the most inspirational places o be, second to the Field Museum in Chicago The field has the largest exhibit of Coast Salish woven cedar art in the USA. Yes, I apprenticed with "Gram"Lillian Pullen , On Washington's West Coast n the Quileute reservation, surrounded by the Olympic Rain Forest. Currently, I have need living in Coast Salish culture surrounded by the Salish sea for the past 14 years..

We jury some of the online exhibitions at Crafthaus and are inviting you to submit to our calls-
Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures
Me, Myself and I http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i
Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty
A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Glen & Marie

Hi Bettina,
Thanks so much for the comment. I'm very glad you've joined Crafthaus, the more BC artists the better, lets keep spreading the word! Your art quilts are wonderful.

In a state of jazz

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis  (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world.
