So how it can it really be mid-May? Two months with no posts...what's up with that? Here in sunny California we are enjoying intermittent days of sunshine and rain and I'm catching up on new work and ongoing projects. But way back in March I had a chance to visit Rhythm and Hues: Cloth and Culture of Mali at the the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco. This great small exhibit closed on May 2nd and I hope some of you got a chance to see it.
The museum has three exhibit spaces that were filled with wonderful examples of textiles from Mali and included videos of cultural events and textile making.
I love these layers of fabric that compose the costume and the animal masks. It is always so tempting to touch the fibers but I resisted the urge. I just looked very closely.
This beautiful shirt is inspirational and shows what a creative mind can accomplish.
I'll be sharing new works later this week. In the meantime, visit www.infinityartgallery.com to see my work being considered for their art quilt exhibit.
