|Now Is The Best Season, 2010|
When I first moved back to San Antonio nine years ago, I heard about a program in which the airport displays work of local artists. It sounded exciting - having one's work in a place visited by thousands of people from all over the world. At the time I didn't respond to the call for entry. You know those naysaying voices inside one's head - "You're not in that league yet. Don't even bother to enter." I listened to those voices, but I did have a vision. A vision of my artwork hanging in the airport.
I had pretty much forgotten that vision until I saw the call for entry last fall. This time, I ignored those voices. Then I received an email saying that my work was accepted. Wow - that vision would be complete. And even more exciting was the news that Jane Dunnewold's work would be on display in the same area. I feel honored to be a part of the program and honored to be in the company of my mentor and friend.
A series of five pieces that I created during the ArtCloth Mastery program were chosen for the airport location. (I wrote about my inspiration for the series in an earlier post.) The installation process went smoothly - the installers were true professionals! Below are a few photos of the installation last month.
If you find yourself in Terminal B at the San Antonio International Airport between now and October, look for Jane's and my work between Gates 4 and 6.
