Shows 2013

The last couple of years I have taken several online classes by Pamela Allen. This resulted in an exhibition which will travel with the Mancuso shows to several places during 2013. Here is the announcement I copied from the Mancuso site:

Hens and Chickens

Synnove Vanar
Karol Kusmaul
Rosemary Hopkins
St. Louis,
Wil Opio Oguta
Pamela Allen has collected the best of her students’ work from online art quilt classes. Even though her class convenes online, cyberspace allows for in depth critiques of work in progress, exchange of information about art history and a growing camaraderie among the participants. Who knew classes could become international learning seminars yet fun and friendly exchanges of mutual problems and triumphs? Being able to share one’s issues with others who are working on the same assignment has been one of the big surprises of working online. Pamela affectionately refers to her students as her "Chickens" and herself as the "Mother Hen." Thus, the title of the exhibition.

Alas the photos didn't come through...but the message did. I had the privilege of being a 'go-fer' for Pamela during a 2-day class at Quilt Canada in Calgary in May 2010. She generously allowed me to participate too, and we had a great time. I admire her terrifically, and her approach definitely loosened me up!
