On September 25th, the Kentucky chapter of SDA had its second Meet & Greet, with an informal presentation on . . . . PRESENTATION! Artists brought pieces in to share with the group their methods of presenting textile work, and also solicit ideas about displaying specific artworks. Artists in attendance were: Laverne Zabielski, Cindy Vough, K. Crane, Mary Nehring, Dina Buckey, Anna Wieczorek, Marti Plager, Karen Davis, Laurie Appleby-Williams, and myself (Jennifer A. Reis).
Based on the lively discussion sparked between artists about different works and presentation ideas, participants decided that the dialogue was so valuable to warrant scheduled KY SDA Critiques. As artists who often work alone, the opportunity to get together to share and request feedback on artwork is invaluable. It’s hoped that these will become a regular feature of the Kentucky SDA chapter like the Meet & Greets.
So . . . the first KY SDA Critique will be held the afternoon of Saturday, January 15 (weather-dependent!) in Versailles at the Presbyterian Church. People are encouraged to bring artwork to discuss. Information in regards to the critique will be sent via e-mail in late December/early January. Interested parties can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Finally, congratulations to Marti Plager as an exhibitor in the most recent manifestation of Quilt National at the Dairybarn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio – see a picture of Marti with one of her pieces below.
