Last week I took a few pieces to Southwestern Community College in Sylva, NC where I'd been invited to exhibit. The wall for exhibit is in the Balsam Center, apparently a multi-purpose building including student center, offices, and some classrooms. Not an "official" gallery but a nice small wall in the main lobby of the building.

I'm still waiting for yarn to arrive for the larger black walnut tapestry so that's sort of still on a bit of hold. There are some parts I can work on and began to do so yesterday afternoon. But, I'm waiting around a bit this morning before going to the studio hoping that the yarn will be into day's mail--wait, that's the postlady's van! Hooray, the yarn came--so off to the studio to get serious again about the black walnut piece. I hope to finish it by the deadline for the exhibit at the Artisans Center in Virginia that Joan Griffin has arranged--work has to be there by Sept. 20.

AND, I learned on Thursday of last week that I've had a piece accepted into the ACC Spotlight Southeast 07 exhibit that will be held at Arrowmont. The piece is the one of the roots that I finished earlier this year. My friend, Pat Williams, has also had work accepted into the show--two pieces for her! The ACC conference is in early September and I may attend...it's been years since I've gone to an ACC conference but this is close enough and I would also be able to see the exhibit.
