Fabulous day yesterday!  I attended my first meeting of SDA (Surface Design Association) in New Bedford and found myself surrounded by some very talented and friendly folks.  The meeting date was chosen to coincide with the opening of the exhibition, Fiber in the Present Tense 2014 at Art Works Gallery, an outgrowth of the New Bedford Art Museum.

Some of the highlights of the exhibit:

Kimberly Becker’s work is quite poignant.  Hers are small pieces painted onto fabric and embellished with thread.  This is a fine example of her work.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
