"Sunset Sailing" accepted!

"Sunset Sailing On the Sound" by Sherrie Spangler


I just got the e-mail notice that my art quilt "Sunset Sailing On the Sound" was accepted into the Harbor History Museum's Juried Maritime Art Exhibit! ("Starfish Rising" was rejected, but one acceptance is good enough for me.)

The quilt under construction, peeling off the Sulky Solvy.
I'm especially honored to be accepted because the juror is Barbara Lee Smith, a world-renowned fiber artist who lives on Raft Island in Gig Harbor. I've never met her, but I've admired her work at a gallery in Santa Fe and I've read her book, "Celebrating the Stitch: Contemporary Embroidery of North America."

The exhibit will run from Aug. 4-Sept. 2, 2012, at the Harbor History Museum.

Have a colorful day

This is wonderful news. And it is a step in another direction for you to explore. A new frontier, so to speak.
