I received an email today informing me that my art piece was accepted in the international textile contest, Le Vie della Seta si incontrano a Verona, www.veronatessile.it
The jury was made up of 5 european jurors: a textile artist, an architect, a goldsmith artist, a professional traditional quilter and a freelance journalist who covers textile art and quilt events and exhibits.
I will have to wait till Verona Tessile is over, March 8 to 13, 2011, before I can post it- contest rules. Here is the back view.
30% of the work had to be silk.
I used a discharge technique to get the effect you see on the black cotton fabric.
Having your art selected is extremely satisfying- someone "gets" your work and appreciates it.
