July 29 Artist Talk at Center for Book Arts

Hello friends, fellow bloggers, and blog readers. I am excited to say that I will be participating in an artist talk at the Center for Book Arts in conjunction with "Threads: Interweaving Textu[r]al Meaning." The show, which opened on July 8, is up through September 12. It is a lovely survey of unconventional artist books incorporating thread. Embroidery, quilting, crochet, and weaving are just a few of the techniques employed by the many artists.

Here is some info about the show, and the artist talk:
