So Tuesday's 400-mile round-trip drive to the Keweeenaw Peninsula in Upper Michigan was balm for my eyes as well as my spirit. Instead of spending a day packaging and shipping 17 pieces for a show, I took a day off and delivered them in person. It was a beautiful drive, and a pleasure to visit with Lynn Anderson and Ed Gray at Ed Gray Gallery in Calumet, Michigan.
The Fiber Show there, which also includes the work of Karen Tembruell and Bill & Linda Sumner, opens tonight and runs through June 29.
The work I'm showing is a textile essay called Night Vision. I spend my share of the wee small hours staring at moonshadows and trying to make sense of things. Night Vision is about the patterns and stories we see in the margins of sleep and contemplation, and the fresh start we get each morning.
