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.

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.
