The Gallery at VAAM

This is the hanging I was working on last weekend, now part of the fiber show at the gallery I'm a part of. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

This is an art doll, "Dream Girl", along with one of the felted
wool bowls I posted earlier.

This is my real-life "art doll", my youngest son Dylan. He's 7 and was helping me take pictures yesterday. He had a peppermint in his mouth so his face looks kind of funny.

Here are my collage book, a PMC and fiber bracelet (in the case) and two small handmade books bound with colorful fibers.

And finally, several views of The Gallery, taken from various angles.

The Gallery is located in a corner of the newly
restored Opera House in our town. Originally built in the late 1800's, it has been an ongoing process of many years to obtain the funds to go forward. Now however, it has been fully funded and the storefronts, office area, grand ballroom, and lobby areas (3 stories altogether) have been completed. Next on the agenda is restoring the auditorium itself, and turning the previously unfinished basement area into a community arts center. We're excited!

The gallery looks amazing as does the art work. It's lovely to see Dylan again...what a handsome boy!
