Hot Tropics––Judges' Recognitions

Monday was jury day at the Gallery. All unsold artwork from the holiday show went home to their artists and new work took its place. The theme of our new show is Hot Tropics: Warmth in Winter's Freeze. This month's judges said "Using fiber to evoke summer's heat and tropical breezes we chose the pieces to represent sun, sea and sand. Everyone worked in their medium to warm up the season."

The jurors also selected three pieces for special recognition. I hope the artists will give me some material to post later in the week, but for now, here the three special pieces:

Anna Yakubovskaya's painted silk top:

Ann Graham's dyed silk scarf:

Elida Moore's red/hot orange crocheted/knit shawl:

Please stop by our Gallery to be warmed by the tropical colors of our new show.
