tie-dyed scarves

Dyeing scarves is like playing with color. I scrunch, tie, clamp, twist or just put them in a baggie and squeeze. Mixing colors and seeing how the different effects end up is always a surprise and delight. Before delivering the scarves to the gift shop that sells them, I photograph them and enjoy the photo's too. Here's a few from recent dyeing.

Ochre/Blue at the Brush Art Gallery in Lowell, MA

The Brush Art Gallery opening reception is Saturday night, August 8, from 3-5 pm. The juried exhibition was organized by Eileen Byrne, and jurors are Sylvia Einstein and Judy Becker. This is the first time I have entered this exhibition, and I am looking forward to being a part of the opening. I feel that I get a good pat on the back when I attend an opening reception, and hear positive comments on my work. There's lots to do this weekend in Lowell, so come if you want to see the latest in art quilts, as well as traditional quilts. Let's hope the weather holds out.
