I’ve been working on some new art lately.
One of the boxes of odd objects that I displayed as part of Jane’s and my show in Jasper held tomatillo husks that I collected in my garden last fall. I combined the husks with a wonderful little bit of clothing (used just as it came to me with a safety pin holding it together), some beads, and some cast off silk thread.
It’s no more than 5″ tall and hangs from a pin in a shadow box.
It’s been accepted into the Working Together show at the Evansville Museum put on in conjunction with the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana. Yay!

That’s really nice looking, like a strange dream catcher, but not 🙂
A fascinating piece! Congratulations on its being accepted in the show!
The safety pin speaks volumes. This piece views extremely well in a photograph, which I appreciate since I may not have the opportunity to see it “live” for a long time. Congrats on being accepted in the show!
Thanks, Barbara! I’ve had that little piece of fabric with the D rings and safety pin for a little while now and it was just begging to be used in art.
congratulations!! who is the juror this year?
It’s the director of the New Harmony gallery–I think.
