Getting ready for summer. I will be one of the Artists in Cabin 13 again this summer. This is a small cabin in Pioneer Park, a lovely tourist stop in Fairbanks. The cabin is sponsored by Fairbanks Arts Association, artists bring in their work and man the cabin one day a week. It is a fun way to show/sell your art and meet new people. I will be there on Mondays all this summer, stop in and say “Hello.”
This is 3 hours of beading. I put down 3 beads at a time, go back through those beads, then lay a stitch between every-other bead to keep them in place. After I have finished a complete row around I go through each bead again.
First Friday at the 31st Annual 64th Parallel Exibition
The guest juror this year was Jovencio de la Paz. He gave a very interesting lecture Monday night, after a long day in the Bear Gallery. Fairbanks area artist submitted over 200 entries. I think we wowed him Fairbanks! I don’t know how he narrowed it down to 64 pieces for the show. I am surprised and honored to have two of my Bead Art pieces chosen for the show.
Here are some of the accepted art works from the show. We had a fun evening seeing great friends, other artists and supporters of the arts! Thank you Fairbanks Arts Association .
Shipwreck Beads had a great sale. This means I am almost ready for winter beading. I know I will buy more beads before our long Alaskan winter is over but, this is a good start.
The 64th Parallel Exhibition is this month. It is going to be juried by Jovencio de la Paz. I heard that there are over 200 entries this year. He must chose only 64 for the show! I have four entries this year, hope to find out that at least one has made it in sometime tomorrow. I will get pictures of my entries soon.
