BIG News ---CYBER FYBER


Susan Lenz from Art in stitches has announced a wonderful exhibition in the US and has invited me to exhibit a piece of my art.
To say that I was honoured would be an understatement and I thank you Susan for even considering me.
Susan has also planned an ATC and Postcard swap in conjunction with the exhibition.
Below is the introduction to how Susan has set up the exhibition and Card trades but if you click on the Cyber Fyber link it will take you the the blog and all will be revealed.
If you would like to trade with Susan you can follow the links and it will take you to all the ATC's (130)and Postcards(163) that she has made for the trade.
They are truly outstanding and she has even cut up some of her previous art works to make them into the cards.
So if you would like to own a piece of Susan's art then go to the CYBER FYBER blog and trade.

Extract from blog---------------------

CYBER FYBER is an exhibition scheduled for January 8 - 20, 2009 at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios, 808 Lady Street in Columbia, South Carolina. (The gallery's blog is here.) There will be three sections to the exhibition:

1) traded fiber postcards

2) traded fiber ATCs

3) artwork by invited fiber artists...each representing a specific aspect/benefit to Internet/blogging communication.

Saturday, February 10 will be "Fiber Day", a partnership with Creative Sewing of West Columbia...complete with demonstrations
Saturday, February 17 will be "ATC Trading Day", a chance for artists of all ages and media to gather and trade ATCs.
Also, there will be an International Random ATC Trade...a chance for all artists in any media to mail ATCs with self-addressed, sufficiently stamped return envelopes for a random drawing trade (arrangements are being made for out of the USA artists!)...and it has been suggested that I learn how to "live broadcast" this! (I've got eleven months to figure this out!)

Congratulations Susan for having the courage to firstly come up with the idea and then to follow your dream of uniting the creative bloggers into one big family.
Thank you Susan

Hey Doreen...I just traded an ATC with Susan for the exhibition too and will be posting a link on my blog to her. She is amazing (or so I'm finding out because I just 'met' her). So glad you were one of the invited ones cause you deserve it!

Kudos! I plan to see the exhibition. Is it possible that I may get to meet you?

I'm doing a trade of postcards with Susan. I get #113 in exchange for a postcard size of a lake based on my series of 100 lake quilts.

I dropped by to thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my cardinal, but I couldn't help looking around at your blog - it's so wonderfully interesting!
This exhibition will be close to me, in the town where my husband goes often for work - I am putting this on my calendar now so I won't miss it!
I also went to your calendar girls blog - lovely work! wish I could sew!
have fun!
