Valley Arts Center in Chagrin Falls was the setting for a two month long exhibit titled “Moody Blues”, an exhibit showcasing the many variations of blue in art. All media was accepted through a jury process. I submitted multiple entries of my shibori silk scarves, with “the storm” being the one they selected for entry.
My scarf is displayed on the maniquen to the right of this other artist. (Sadly they did not take a photo of me and my scarf.)
And a fellow fiber artist, Katherine Graham Sarlson also juried in with a beautiful cut devore silk scarf in blues and greens… simply elegant.
Well, today the show ends. It was lovely to be a part of such a wonderful group of talented folks… and to be accepted in the art community for my contributions. The Storm is a very traditional shibori pattern, and is meant to resemble the angry waves of the ocean through variation of color of blue, and diagonal patterning. It is a favorite of mine to make, and I have never been able to duplicate the exact pattern twice.
Thank you Valley Arts Center for this opportunity. How nice it was.
