Most Excellent News!

"The Bone Goddess", Convergence II Exhibition entry from Cyndie Smith
and Patty Lakinsmith, copyright 2010.

Amidst a heady blanket of recent warm spring weather I received a wonderful bit of news. Cyndie Smith and I just found out last night that our latest collaboration, "The Bone Goddess" was accepted into the Convergence II exhibit. It's very exciting, and I can't wait to see all of the other incredibly creative entries, which were based on the theme of a real or fictional character. The exhibit will be at this year's Bead and Button show in Milwaukee, and at The Gathering in Rochester, NY, and a couple of other venues that I'll share later.

Now that I've got a little photography schoolin' under my belt, I'll get a better photo to share with you before I send the piece off.

Here is a list of all of the accepted entries and artists. It's going to be a fantastic exhibit.

Patty, thanks for the sweet comments- you've made me feel a lot better today. I've been so stressed and scared, it's crazy. But I know things are going to get better. Thanks again. :)

Congrats to you!! What a wonderful piece this is - can't wait to see it "up close and personal". And you know, of course, the fibers in there are tugging at my heartstrings... ;-)

congratulations!! that piece is so incredibly everything - how could they not accept it... what a fabulous collaboration - and what an accomplishment...

Patty said...

Thank you all! We really owe a lot to the ISGB organizers (Sarah!) for giving us an incredibly inspiring and fun theme. The more we learned about the "Bone Goddess", the more we got into it. And it's going to be a*ma*zing seeing all of the pieces together at The Gathering. Did you know that Sally LaGrand's piece (inspired by Mata Hari) has a real spy camera in it? Just blows your mind.
