Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side.

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta October 30-November 27, 2015 at…See More

Play That Funky Music !

Exhibition Date May 1 - June 1, 2014 You hear a piece of music and it sends you back in time. Suddenly you remember situations, sights, smells, and certain people as if it happened yesterday. What is the relationship between music and craft? Are there craft pieces that relate to favorite songs?How about a vase made while listening to opera? A table inspired by hard rock? Footwear to go with Lady Gaga? What are the lyrics that draw you in and inspire you to create?See More

since i'm in vermont, i'm actually closer to toronto than you, it would appear.  i'm pondering driving instead of flying so i might take the fam with me.  but school is still in session, so i'll have to weigh that.  have getting the passports penciled in for late fall so i'll have them on time.  i've never been to toronto so i'm excited about going.  i'm glad you'll be there.  i have to make time to meet up with you to just chat.  i love your work and would love to just talk.  thanks so muhc.  anne
