So I have....

I have been visiting ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, MI!  This is a huge displays from artists all over the world that set up displays from September 18 to October 4th.  From the website:
"ArtPrize® is a radically open, independently organized international art competition with an unprecedented $200,000 top prize decided entirely by public vote." 
Each year, we make two or three trips to see all of the art around the city--on the streets, in the Museums, in Frederick Meijer the businesses too! 

The above piece and close is called Vortices and is by Allison Svobada and is Traditional Japanese sumi-e on kozo paper, hand cut. 
 This entry is called Woolhouse.  Staged in a little corner, you can see where Annie Belle, cast on her balls of wool roving and knitted the walls,
 the mailbox,
 and the couch, inner walls, a rug on
the floor, pillows.  For more detail see:
So while I am perusing other art, and casting my votes, I am also planning my stitches and threads for the next pieces.  This is a great event to see and if you get the chance, check out the website, or come and visit!
