FINE CRAFT artist at TAMARACK

Finally!  It took a year but on November 6, 2010 Jim and I travelled 5 hours to Beckley, WV to the afternoon session of jurying at TAMARACK-“the Best of West Virginia” and by 4:30 we got the good news: I was accepted for work in FINE CRAFT.  Six pieces were reviewed for technique, materials, design and I received a perfect score from the jurors.

This means that rughooking will be represented in upcoming gallery shows at TAMARACK.  I am proud to represent this craftform to an audience geared toward seeing craft at its finest..as ART.  The extra work I put into finishing the backs of the stretched pieces, and overall presentation added to the value and worth of the textiles.  One fine artist when I showed her my stitched cloth backing,  said “That looks professional.”  I will share these tips with rughookers in upcoming workshops and to anyone who inquires here.
