Work by Cheyenne's Phillippa Lack to be exhibited at Verona Tassile March 8-13

Hummingbirdminds always likes to hear good news from Wyoming artists.

Phillippa Lack of Cheyenne notified us that her work, "Ascent" (pictured above), that was submitted to "The Silk Roads Meet in Verona" contest, has been selected by the jury to be exhibited in Verona, Italy, for Verona Tessile, March 8-13, 2011. Phillippa didn’t say whether or not she’s attending the event.

The artist’s entries, “Night Flowers” and “Pastel,” were selected by Juror Pamela Allen for SAQA¹s juried exhibition Volusia Wrapped in Fiber in Gateway Center for the Arts, DeBary, Fla. Out of 323 quilts submitted by 118 artists, the judge selected 98 quilts by 61 artists.

Of the work, Pamela said, “The high quality of the entries for this show, and the diversity of creative expression made jurying a real treat. I had no specific agenda but the main thing for me is that the work should be ART and recognizable as such.”

The exhibition will open at Gateway on February 15 and end on April 6. There will be an artist¹s reception on February 20th from 2-4 p.m. There will also be a Gathering Threads Biannual meeting of open to all fiber artists on February 26 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
