Under Color, an exhibit of Chuppah's created by Jeanne Williamson

Easter weekend I was very lucky to be in Massachusetts and able to go see the exhibit Under Color at the Kniznick Gallery in the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University which runs until May 22.  it's an exhibit of Chuppahs, or Jewish wedding canopies,  created by Jeanne Williamson during her artist in residence at Brandeis in mid March to mid April. They were made using her techniques using construction fence.The amount of work that she created in this short amount of time is beyond amazing.

The exhibit was very impressive, but I had some favorites, which are shown below. 

More of Jeanne's Chuppahs work can be found here.

Today is the first day of a blog hop to celebrate the publication of my friend Lynn Krawczyk's book The first stop is Sue Blebleiweiss with a chance to win a copy of the book.

I am still waiting for my copy, but knowing Lynn I am certain the the book will be chock full of interesting ideas and easy to understand instructions. Sue's blog gives a wonderful summary of Lynn's approach to printing and creating fabric.

Today I am in the process of doing some low water immersion dyeing of silk scarves using some new colors I just received from Dharma Trading Co.  I am excited to see how beautiful spring like colors come out.  Will be posting photos of some of the scarves later this week.
