The Minnesota State Fair starts today!

The Minnesota State Fair is the place to be this week! I’m looking forward to next Wednesday, when I’ll join a group of friends to view the exhibits, share treats, and join in the craziness of the crowds.

For those you headed to the fair in St. Paul, be sure to check out the Fine Arts exhibit. It is a juried collection of works entered by Minnesota residents, ranging from jewelry, painting, and sculpture, to photography, textiles, and mixed media.

I have a new work accepted into the Fine Arts textiles/fibers department. It is a tall rectangular two-dimensional wall piece, made from acrylic-painted silks. The work is primarily blue and red, so it should be easy to spot!
