Exhibit in Windsor, NY

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Three of my works will be exhibited at the Windsor Whip Works Gallery, in Windsor (NY) from March 16 to April 13 in a show titled: Fabulous Fibers and Bewitching Baskets.  The gallery is in a building that hosted a buggy whip factory in the nineteenth century.  This Italian ornate building was recently renovated.  Bill and Johanne Pesce are co-directors of the gallery.

This is the postcard which shows a sample of the works exhibited by eight artists.

Every Saturday during the show, three artists give a presentation of their technique.  Today Evelyn Eidelberg, Randy Frost and myself gave a presentation.

Evelyn who, among many artistic skills make dolls, taught us how to make pencil dolls using yarn, pipe cleaners and beads.
