A visit to the Smith-Williams Gallery at Piedmont


Yesterday afternoon my husband and I visited my exhibit at the Smith-Williams Art Studios Gallery at Piedmont College, Demorest, Georgia.  It was the first time he'd been able to see the show--and wanted to before it ends later this week.

I was able to take a couple photos of the two main walls with the tapestries installed:



Here's my 2015 tapestry diary's place in the exhibit:


And last shot of the show, the photo Thomas took as I stood near the oak leaf tapestry that I finished just before this show.  I think it shows the scale of the piece well (I'm about 5'3"):


I'm gearing up for the next tapestry to begin--I have not yet committed to the image from which to work but I may look back at last year's paintings I made while at Lillian Smith Center since there are a couple more of those I'd like use as tapestry images.  I have warp remaining on the big loom but I may warp another loom instead.  I've got to decide and get to it in the next few days.

The black walnut adventures for 2016 are really drawing me to work more with them, though!  Here's the tapestry diary October painting... the weaving for the month is underway and I'm two leaves into it. 

 
 More about this year's tapestry diary in the future... it's hard to believe that only three months remain in the year!
