We Jerome grantees met today at Concordia University Art Center Gallery to begin the planning for our show.
Our show is titled TRUTH TELLING. We all are dealing with various versions of hard truths that are often hidden or denied: domestic violence; ageism/sexism; mental illness; environmental loss. So we will tell our truths. The opening is slated for November 13, with an informal gallery talk from 5-6pm, reception from 6-8 pm.
Finally, after much delay, testing, seven hour stitchings ending in the trash can...I have completed the embroidery on the 50 years old and up jacket! Now, it needs to be indigo dyed and then lined. Onward, ever onward!
WEARING MY AGE
I have received a grant from the Jerome Foundation to work on a project that I have called "Wearing My Age."
