Sister #3


   The MLH conference begins this Friday, June 5 (2015), at Hope College in Holland, MI, with the opening of the exhibits at 2pm.  My participation in these is my "In the Garden of the Puff Sisters," a triptych of figures in which I used photo transferred (acetone rubbings) of selfies I took in front of my refrigerator, crimp woven cloth (see previous posts explaining this technique taught by Diane Totten) on which I transfer printed disperse dyes in bright colors as well as on deconstructed "silk" flowers.  I also have a vendor booth in which I'm selling my self-published patterns, dolls, and handprinted fabric.  The Fashion Show takes place on Friday at 7pm with $20 tickets (cash only) available at the door.
Exhibits are open and free to the public.
