Jean M. Judd/Profiles in Passion Volume One



Greetings All,
Textile artist Jean M. Judd of Cushing, Wisconsin was one of 51 artists and artisans selected for inclusion in the Profiles in Passion Volume One: Artists & Artisans book just released March of 2014 by freelance writer, Buz Swerkstrom.
Swerkstrom has spent the last 30 years interviewing over 300 artists and artisans in northwestern Wisconsin and beyond. These interviews conducted with a tape recorder and still camera, reveal the creative passion each of these featured people bring to their work. Originally small portions of these interviews were featured in regional newspapers and magazines. They are now are being expanded to provide a more clear and whole picture of each artist’s passion, process, and personal story.
This first volume features artists who work with wood, metal, ceramics, glass, textiles, film, paint, photography, and several other mediums. The interviews in their studios are recreated here in such a way that readers will feel they are part of the conversation.

The book is available on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and other brick and mortar booksellers as well as directly from the writer.

Upcoming Exhibit info and workshop

Below is a post from the Illinois SDA blog. I thought many of the SAQA members might be interested in seeing the exhibit and learning about the workshop. Any interest in a field trip????


Greetings from Southern Illinois.  It's been awhile since I last posted.  Let me reintroduce myself.  I am Pat Vivod.  


Detail of rust print work in progress.  Silk
Elizabeth Adams-Marks and I are co-curating an international exhibition at the Jacoby Arts Center in Alton, IL that opens this August. We have invited Fabienne Rey of the Netherlands, Irit Dulman of Israel and Rio Wrenn of Portland, Oregon to join us in the exhibition. Elizabeth and I live just eight miles apart and have known each other for over a decade.  The five of us have been Facebook and blog friends for a few years.  

All of us work with natural materials, Fabienne with silk and felt, Irit with felt and both do eco-printing, Rio and I work with with rust, and Elizabeth with handmade paper, indigo and rust.  All of us have exhibited widely. If you are a subscriber to Fiber Art Now, you may recognize our names from the Summer 2013 issue.  Fabienne, Irit and I were featured in Wendy Feldberg's article Unearthing Eco-dyes.  Irit shared the magazine article on her blog here.  

Our exhibit is titled From the Inside Out: Revelations in Natural Mark Making and has already been a year in the making.  The title is a reference, in part, to how we work.  You can read all about the exhibit and see artist profiles at our blog From the Inside Out.

From the Inside Out will run from August 22 to October 4, 2014
Opening reception is August 22, 5 to 9 pm.  
There will be an artist talk that evening with Elizabeth and I--and we are keeping our fingers crossed that Rio Wrenn will be able to join us.  We are negotiating for her to teach a one day workshop, so stay tuned.   

We hope you can see the show.  If you can't make the opening, but want a tour of the exhibit contact me when you'll be in Alton.  I'll be happy to meet you at the gallery.  

We are also pleased to announce that Fabienne Rey will be zooming over from the Netherlands to teach a workshop in conjunction with our exhibit in September.


Detail of eco-printed silk

From The Inside Out: Eco-Prints and Memory Cloth I is a 3 day intensive workshop to be held outdoors in a garden setting about 30 minutes east of downtown St. Louis.  The workshop will be limited to 12 participants.  No eco-dye experience necessary.  
Workshop dates are September 19, 20, 21, 2014
Fabienne will also give a gallery talk at Jacoby Arts Center in Alton on September 18, 7 pm.

Information for Fabienne's workshop can be found here.

If you think you might be interested in participating the workshop, you should know that slots are filling up fast.  To get on our mailing list for details and registration form, you can message me your full name and email at Pat Vivod Artist on Facebook or write to shiborirust[at]yahoo[dot]com.

I know that many of you helped with the booth for SAQA last year but they are desprately in need of help again this year. Please consider taking this on - we all get a lot from SAQA - can anyone help give back?

SAQA is looking for two volunteer booth coordinators for the Sewing and Quilting Expo, March 27-29, in Shaumberg, IL and for the International Quilt Festival, Chicago- June 20 -22.  

Please contact  Desi Vaughn if you are interested. If there are two of you that would like to share the coordinating duties for either of the shows, that is great too.

I am only looking for coordinators right now, we'll be asking for help staffing the booths closer to the events.  Please save the dates to help out.
Thank you,
