Stories are Made Loop by Loop features seven artists using hand hooking. The Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg, VA is the first stop for this traveling exhibit. Open Tuesdays-Saturdays 10-4 the show is up through October 7, 2023. Here is a video as I walk you through the exhibit.
For those of you who can not visit at this venue, the next site is the Juliet Art Museum at Clay Center for Arts and Sciences, Charleston, WV opening in Spring of 2024 – mid June. The show travels to The Dairy Barn Art Center in Athens, OH July 5 – Sept 1 and finishes at the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center, Pennsburg, PA Sept – December.
On September 23 I am conducting a workshop 10:30-1:30 titled Beginner Rug Hooking – a make-do workshop . We will pull some loops creating a mat with applique’ and embroidery. Learn about the make-do textile craft of the McDonald sisters from Gilmer County WV in the 1960’s. Registration details in this link.
I am traveling to Athens, West Virginia later this month to see the solo exhibit Black History Month of Robby Moore’s mixed media work. Following his social media posts as the work was in progress and now reading the artist statement I felt drawn to see the work in person. Robby has offered to meet me at Concord University gallery for a conversation. Follow this creative advocate @RobbyMooreArt Look forward to reviewing the show and seeing where it travels next.
The September post will begin introducing the artists in Stories are Made Loop by Loop with personal interviews.
