|detail of Rose Petal Shroud by Beverly Ayling Smith|
Her use of the the minimalist dot grid called me from across the room, and although the graphic and simple minimalism of the design is what drew me closer, the reward of seeing real fragile rose petals secured with gestural hand stitch touched something un-nameable.
here to see her stitched leaves.
above, a taste of the Red and the Black exhibition. In the background, Rose Petal Shroud and Timelines. In the foreground, Emma Nishimura's sculpture Shifting Views, made from gampi, steel and soil, and on the right, Emily Pvorin's Off the Back Burner, a coiled basket form made from a stove top burner grate, wire, and shoelaces.

In the same building as the Red and the Black exhibition are a zillion solo exhibitions and installations in the corridors. (my work is there). The whole festival takes place during the entire month of November in Oakville, Ontario. Click on World of Threads.for more information.
I love the picture of you standing with your installation at The World of Threads .... many congratulations, Judy !!!!!!!
Frank Myers (an artist photographer that has been a friend for 40 years or so) took the photos of the install and he managed to make me look OK.
The exhibition as a whole is really great...I encourage you to go see.
You look great, the show amazing, hope to venture north from Erie to experience the wonderful work!
These are phenomenal pieces. Thanks.
those stitched rose petals are so evocative
the red and black is simply stunning, but the rose petals says so much.. such simplicity and fragility.. amazing..
