I finally completed another project this semester: the pineapple bag that I started a couple weeks ago is finally finished, although it looks nothing like my original sketch. I am still happy with it, and if I had more time before the 2011 Holiday Sale, I would make a couple similar ones to sell. Here are some pictures (sorry the colors are not very true to life):
And, as promised last post, some pictures of my corn syrup scarf:
I can also update you on three exhibitions looking for work coming up in the next few months:
HONEY, a dynamic, juried exhibition embodying and celebrating the role of the honeybee. In light of the international Colony Collapse Disorder crisis and global concerns over war, economic collapse and a worldwide food shortage, the fate of the honeybee mirrors the fate of humanity. Philosopher Rudolf Steiner noted the bees as an indicator species in developing his ideas on biodynamic farming and caring for the earth. This call for entries seeks artwork related to these issues and honoring the majestic apis mellifera.
For full details, please download and read the prospectus [PDF format].
Entries are due by January 20th, 2012.
The exhibition dates are March 10 – April 8, 2012.
