Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists - "My Inner Self Portrait" exhibit

Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists' exhibit called "My Inner Self Portrait" is traveling to Savannah. I first blogged about the exhibit in here.

Mancuso Show Management
October 15 - 18, 2015
Santa Clara Convention Center
Santa Clara, CA

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.

My piece is called Becoming Me is included in this exhibit.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. 

Thanks for stopping by!
