Have a look - and wander into the areas other than textile. It's time to stretch, the start of a new year, filled with possibilities. Yep, it's just a date on a calendar, and culturally limited even. But we all feel a little surge of new when that date rolls over, right?
Here's one site to check out for interesting artist interviews
And, a site that I learned about though Jane Dunnewold and one of her posts on Facebook:
http://hyperallergic.com/ is filled with art news from the world, big art, little art, political art, artful ideas!
And, from a local textile friend, this one: http://www.patternobserver.com
And speaking of stretching and working in different media -- my 2017 Summer Art Camp at The Camp at Capilla Peak in New Mexico will be a wonderful play fest of materials, different media, the summer camp stuff you loved as a kid (or maybe never got to experience) and the company of wonderful art explorers, both beginners and experienced. It's an experience you have to have to understand, a magical mix of clouds, pines, cabins, campfires, conversations, open studios, instruction in printmaking or metal work, surface design on fiber and even art on the iPad sessions on an individual sign up basis. What more could you want from summer fun. See the details on my website at http://www.susiemonday.com -- the summer camp page.
Dale Jenssen will be the focus artist for session 2, July 6-11, teaching metal work with sconce making, boxes and a variety of big and little projects.
