Looking for a Resource to Print Wallpaper

July 5, 2014

I was contacted by Ashley, who is  looking for a Denver area resource to print wallpaper.  Each roll will need to be 27″ x 9 yards, preferably trimmed.  Ideally, she would like to find a screen printer, not a digital printer or a hand screen printer. She goes on to say:

I’d like to place orders for 50 – 100 rolls at a time.  Most patterns we’ll offer, we’ll reprint for about 3-5 years.  I’d love to support a local business.  So, if you happen to know of any businesses that would be a good fit for my project, please let me know.

You may contact her directly at: aeallen80@hotmail.com

Show Proposal for SDA Colorado Members

SDA fabric

 

Show opportunity: The SDA members who traveled to Color Creek in Grand Junction decided that it would be worthwhile putting in a group SDA CO member application to show at the Western Slope Center for the Arts (The Art Center). The application needs to be in by end of August (I [Mary Hertert] will write it) supported by 10 strong photographs of SDA CO member’s work that represents the theme.

The show’s theme is Art Cloth — 3-5 yards created or surfaced so that the cloth makes its own statement. The cloth will be hung from the ceilings so that it can be viewed from all sides. There is wall space for smaller pieces. The purpose of the show is to celebrate the cloth, in this case defined as a single uncut embellished (dyed, painted, printed, stitched, etc) piece of cloth meant to be displayed as art.

The application is for 2016 so I don’t need any hard commitments from anyone just yet but I do need quality photos from individuals who have and do create art cloth. These photos can be details or images of your work hanging in an art cloth exhibit. These are mostly to give the selection committee clear understanding of:

a) what is meant by art cloth,

b) scope of variety of work by CO SDA members and

c) examples of how it can be displayed in an exhibit.

 

Please get back to me as soon as possible with any of the following:

  • If you are interested in participating in this show and are willing to have your name listed in the proposal
  • If you have photos of work that you are willing to include
  • If you are willing to edit the proposal (that would help me no end)

Contemporary Fiber at Helikon Gallery

June 8, 2014

The Thursday night opening of Contemporary Fiber at Helikon Galley was well attended, as was the panel discussion on Saturday. The 2-hour discussion was recorded as audio and video. Both will be available soon. I will post the links here on the blog when they are available. Until then you might be interested in some of the other coverage in local media.

Colorado Public Radio chose this exhibit as one of five “must do” events for art lovers to see this last weekend. You can listen to the promo until June 12, 2014.

Crave Magazine also did a write up with a few photos of the exhibit.
