Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists - 2 exhibits

I'm excited to have artwork in the Beyond The Edge Fiber Artists two exhibits, “My Inner Self-Portrait” and “Shaped by Fiber III”, on display this summer at the Cerritos Library in Cerritos, California.  The exhibits will begin on July 1 and run through the end of August, 2016. The library is located at 18025 Bloomfield Ave. in Cerritos, California. You can contact the library for more information at 562-916-1350. I hope you have a chance to see them and the lovely Cerritos library. 

Shaped by Fiber III

Shaped by Fiber III is an exhibit featuring fiber art that goes beyond two dimensional wall hangings. The works shown in this exhibit include three dimensional forms, vessels, mounted fiber art, and hanging pieces. This stunning exhibit shows numerous ways that fibers can be sculpted to create spectacular artworks. 
It's nice to have a beautiful space that I can show my 3D pieces

My Inner Self-Portrait 
A fine arts fiber exhibit exploring aspects of self-portraiture. In this exhibit the artist was asked to look beyond the mere physical and instead present an inner view. The art work may reflect how the artist sees themselves at this time, or at a formative moment in their life. Each piece reveals something unique to the individual and at the same time, that which is universal to all.

This exhibit premiered in 2015 at Road to California. My artist statement for this piece:

"My piece is called Becoming Me. This artwork is a part of the Peel Away The Layers series that I started when I was approaching my 50th birthday.  I realized that I was peeling away the layers to become the woman that I am today.  Underneath the layers is a slightly wonky, colorful woman."
