Riverwest Art Walk

next weekend, saturday and sunday 12 - 5, is Riverwest's Art Walk and once again ABK Weaving Center is participating.  in previous years we have hosted a sale in a Board members back yard and while it's been fun, it's never been successful.  i mean as far as sales go.  so this year i proposed that we set up the yard as a weaving gallery space.  we will have different styles of weaving displayed as well as some different looms set up for demonstration and trial.  i'm kind of excited about it.  i've been planning out how to display everything and i think i've come up with a nice concept. hopefully i'll have pictures tomorrow.  part of being in the Art Walk is having some art represented at the Jazz Gallery on Center st.  i finished this weaving on friday and dropped it off at the gallery on saturday.  look for it on etsy sometime in november.

Butterfly Morning woven runner.  wool and cotton in shades of gold, yellow, and blue.  overshot "trellis" patterns.

"i found you in the corner
down there sitting on the sea
gonna trace your footsteps
underneath the waves
on the petals of a wild flower
with the sun high at noon
i want walks in butterfly mornings
and wild flower afternoons"  - hope sandoval
