The original fabric relief illustrations from Pocketful of Posies are currently on display at the Muscatine Art Center in Muscatine, Iowa. The exhibit will be up through June 19th. (See traveling exhibit schedule here) I’ll be flying out the weekend of May 21/22 to take part in some events at the museum. On Saturday, May 21, from 10:00 to 5:00, I’ll be teaching a doll making workshop (call the Muscatine Art Center to register). Also, a reception will be held on Sunday, May 22 from 1:00 to 5:00 and I’ll give a gallery talk at 2:00. I’m looking forward to experiencing some warm mid-western hospitality and hope to meet some of you at the workshop and reception!
So far, this is the only scheduled doll workshop on the tour, since I’ve pretty much stopped teaching. I figured since I’m traveling out to Iowa for the weekend, we might as well get together a group of people who want to do my favorite activity, stitch and make little dolls, that is.
So exquisite, only wish I was close enough to join you
c est sublime j adore gros bisous a bientot jojo
Oh, I can’t get over your amazing work! How adorable they are!!!! As an extreme doll lover, my, how I wish I could be there!!!!! Have fun!
Lucky people–they will have a great time. And I hope that you have a great time as well!
Oh, I hope an exhibit of your art makes it to California someday! You work always makes me smile – so beautiful!
I wish your exhibit was coming closer to Philadelphia.
I’d love to see it.
oh my!! iowa seems somewhat do-able…i’ll have to do some planning…it’s 5-6 hours from mn, so i’ll have to see….fingers are crossed
I do hope you can come, Kristin! This location may be the closest to MN.
Would love to have your traveling exhibit and you too, if possible, come to our area here in Chattanooga, TN. I’ve been checking around with the head of the art ed. dept. here at UTC and she suggests the Chattanooga Bicentennial Library or our curator at UTC, Ruth Groves. Also the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga may also be a possibility. I think it would be a great opportunity for classrooms to experience the books and art work in person. Please email me back with any funding information I need to tell these different sources about getting the exhibit to our area.
Thanks for your generous offer to help find a place to show. I’ll send you more info about the exhibit and let’s hope we can get TN on the list!
I was reading your blog earlier this year and saw that your work was going to be on display in Muscatine. I commented on that and you told me about the class. I was the first one to sign up! The lady at the museum asked how I had heard about it since she hadn’t publicized it yet at that time. I’ve convinced another librarian friend to sign up and we’re looking forward to it.
Belinda, I’m so glad you and your friend are coming to the workshop. See you there!
Wow! The dolls are really cool! I just checked your book out. They make great illustrations 🙂
Oh, to be able to come to Iowa!! Those midwesterners are SO lucky to have you come to visit them! I hope you have a wonderful time and make lots of new friends, as you share your knowledge and expertise with everyone. I sure hope that I will make it to one of your exhibits someday…and to learn more about your doll making would be pure joy. I have your book but would love to learn even more “from the master”! Enjoy…and good fortune to all you IOWANS!
