My felt painting 'Tiffany Spring Flowers' was selected for the 3rd place in the August juried online exhibition 'Creative Inspiration' hosted by Bauhaus Prairie Art Gallery
The jurors Margaret Gaeddert and Caryl Morgan took the time to write lovely statements about the works of the award winners (which is not usually done), and it is very interesting what they have to say about a felted painting.
I am so happy that again a piece of fiberwork has been accepted in the fine art setting!
"Tiffany Spring Flowers, a fiber and felt piece by Susanne Weber (third place) anchors the creative process to natural elements. Weber uses time honored techniques of layering natural fiber to create felt but applies the craft to a most unlikely subject, Tiffany glass. Glass design seems to be the opposite of delicate fiber work but the artist shows that the art nouveau style composition can be achieved in a most unlikely medium. The iris’ at the bottom are reminiscent of post-impressionists painters like Van Gogh and Monet. The upper two thirds have the oriental elements that artists of the 1920’s were discovering and incorporating in their art. The artist also includes areas of stitching for emphasis and overall the elements combine to be a creative homage to another time and medium yet rendered in an unconventional method."
Yay, my package from Wraptious has arrived! They were sending such gorgeous items to all 12 finalists from the Autumn Competition - which I think is extremely nice 😍 (Special thanks for the jelly thingies, I am an addict!)
This is a brilliant start into the New Year - my latest felt painting 'Snow Princess' was accepted for the juried January exhibition of the Fusion Art Gallery!
In December, these motifs made it at the Wraptious competition amongst 2000 entries on the shortlist of 12 artists and were available as beautiful cushions until Christmas.
December is a good month - not only because I love Christmas! These works have been all included in juried online art exhibitions - I feel very honored.
'The Hidden Spot' got an 'Honorable Mention' (1 of only 8!) and 'Frelsi - Freedom' was judged as 'Noteworthy' in the online exhibition 'Landscape, Cityscape & Interiors' of the Bauhaus Prairie Art Gallery.
'Blue' was the theme for the December show of the Colors of Humanity Art Gallery, which features two of my works - 'Peacock Dream' and 'Dance of the Eagle Rays'.
Last but not least, two of my works were accepted for the Fusion Art Gallery December exhibition 'Seasons': Once more 'The Hidden Spot', and 'November Wood'.
