Thank you for visiting the blog of the Kentucky chapter of the Surface Design Association! We intend to use this as a means to publicize the work of the KY SDA, whether as a group with documentation about our Meet & Greets and exhibitions or focusing on the artistic accomplishments of individual Kentucky SDA members. While all folks interested in working (or appreciating!) art from fiber/textile materials are invited to our quarterly get-togethers, only SDA members are able to participate in our art opportunities like exhibitions and publicity courtesy of this blog. So – if you’re not a SDA member, please consider joining by visiting the SDA WEB SITE (click it!).
KY SDA had its first Meet & Greet this past June in Versailles. The turnout was good for the first time, and people brought their artwork to share which was a great opportunity to see what people are up to! Also, we had a short program and discussion about how to photograph your work very “quick and dirty”, and that led into the idea that at our next Meet & Greet (scheduled for Saturday, September 25 from 1 – 4 p.m., Versailles), we should have the program on different methods/means of display textile/fiber art (including 2D & 3D work) in different contexts – exhibitions, craft shows, etc.
Here are some photos of the afternoon:
We’re very much looking forward to seeing more fiber folks at the next Meet & Greet – remember – Saturday, September 25th from 1 – 4 p.m. in Versailles. For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org – we’d love to have you!
Upcoming posts will include information about individual artists (including studio tours!) and what will hopefully be the first KY SDA exhibition at the Claypool-Young Art Gallery at Morehead State University in the summer of 2011, with associated mini-conference the first Saturday of June. Stay posted!
Your SDA area co-rep, blog editor, and artist in arms,
