where have I been?

You can pretty well guess if you look at the picture. Last Thursday, Judy Langille and I flew to Arizona to attend the annual conference of the Art Cloth Network. Eleven of us, including Susie Monday of El Cielo Studio, gathered to talk business, share our work, inspire each other, and learn from one another.

We arrived at the Amado Inn, near Tucson,on Thursday and we spent Friday on business and sharing work until it was time to go to the opening of our exhibit, Alterations, juried by Elin Noble. This dazzling artcloth exhibit was at the Tubac Art Center. I did not have time to make pieces of art cloth to submit to the show, so I could just enjoy it as an observer.

Judy Langille with Susie Monday in one of her art cloth jackets, are obviously enjoying themselves.
Here's another cluster, including Carol Larson (seated, in mustard jacket, with Susie) and Susan Ettl in black, standing on the right.
Still on west coast time (seems to be the story of my life) so I'll fall into bed and finish the rest of the report tomorrow.

Oh, wow! Why aren't I in this picture? I want to be part of this group. Welcome home, I missed you.

Carol and I were just getting to know each other when I moved to Portland.

Thanks Rayna and prizes for getting this blog post up! I had one time zone less to travel and I am still trying to adjust. And, by the way, the lovely art cloth jacket I wore was made by my friend and professional artist Cynthia Poe. She sells her work all over the southwest under the label Nischala -- no website that I can find. (I simply can't sew 3-d things to fit on a body)
