WILD GLAMOUR: Annual Show at YT Galleria

Glamour Girl in Black Tube Hat

My annual show opens at YT Galleria on Thurs., Oct. 2, with a reception from 4-8pm.  There's usually wonderful food and the galleria also has wonderful clothing, new abstract paintings by Carol Johnson I'm entranced with.  I decided on Wild Glamour as a title because I wanted to do more Glamour Girls that were beyond the styles I had tried, especially more with grass hair.  I still have more to experiment with, but there are also more Pisces Women, and the unusual Green Woman and Woman Enveloped in Ferns that were produced in the midst of the coldest months of last winter.  YT Galleria is in the East Hills section of Grand Rapids at 966 Cherry St., GR 49506; 616-451-8817; with lots of restaurants.  Hope to see you there for the reception!

Hope you get time to visit the MI Arts All Media Competition at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 E. 8th Street, Holland, MI 49423 before Nov. 30.  It's a great show in which two of us in the fiber arts got in pieces:  a thread painting by fellow guild member, Priscilla Lynch, and a monoprinted embroidery of mine--- very proud to have gotten in a piece and an embroidery at that!
