Last Week of Dallas Area Fiber Artist Exhibit at The Pointe

This week is the last week of the Dallas Area Fiber Artists exhibit at The Pointe (CC Young Campus in Dallas). If you haven't been able to get to Dallas to see the exhibit, I hope you will be able to this week. We are so fortuate to have such talented artists in our group, viewing their work is a treat.
If you miss this month's exhibit you will have another opportunity to see the works of the Dallas Area Fiber Artists, March 12-14, 2010. DAFA will be hosting a Special Exhibit at the Dallas Quilt Celebration 2010.
Hope you can make it out for one of these exhbits!

New Website!

I'm very blessed to have talented kids. This past week my son set up a website for "Studio Jules Art". I love the look and the way it flows. "Studio Jules Art" is a site to show my quilt art and let you know where you can see my art "in person". There are still a few minor tweaks we need to make, but link on over and see the site! Let me know what you think, comments are always welcome!

I'm still working on my latest Sunflower quilt. Hand work goes slow sometimes, but the center of the sunflower is really looking great. I've almost finished the thread painting on the petals and the background quilting is going to very simple.

Meet the Artist Night at "The Pointe"

Well, due to the snow we are to have tomorrow and tomorrow night, The Pointe and the Dallas Area Fiber Artist group have decided to cancel the "Meet the Artist" night. It's a bummer that the weather is cancelling an evening we were all looking forward to, but we rather be safe, than sorry. The exhibit is running through February 25th. If you can get a chance to see it you will be impressed with the talent of the artists that are displayed.
This week I'm working on the thread painting of my latest Sunflower quilt. I'm very pleased with the way it is turning out. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it tomorrow and get pictures up of it.
Well, all of you that are experiencing the cold, snowy weather, stay warm and stay safe!

Dallas Area Fiber Artists Show

I had the best time yesterday! I'm a member of the Dallas Area Fiber Artists (DAFA) and was asked to coordinate our groups' show at The Pointe at C.C. Young in Dallas. Yesterday was the day to hang the art work and what fun! DAFA is blessed with numerous artists with a wide variety of visions and talents. I'm so blessed to be a member of this group. With such a variety of art work, different styles, colors and sizes, hanging the show was fun. Everything flows very well.
If you are in the Dallas area the exhibit is showing through February 25, 2010. The Pointe - Center for Arts and Education is located in the C.C. Young campus at 4847 West Lawther Drive, Dallas, TX. On February 11, 2010 we will be having a "Meet the Artist" reception from 6pm to 7:30pm. Hope to see you there!
