I was interviewed by Margaret Winslow, Delaware Art Museum‘s Curator of Contemporary Art for Art Watch Radio along with Juried Craft Exhibition Juror, Paul Sacaridiz. This came about because of my inclusion in the Juried Craft Exhibition that continues through January 27th, 2019.
Margaret’s interview with Paul Sacaridiz, the Executive Director of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts on Deer Isle, Maine is first and they discuss among other things how he went about selecting 61 objects by 39 artists from 350 submissions. Margaret also asks him his feelings about the age old question should there be a division between contemporary craft and contemporary art. He actually believes there should be to preserve the history of craft and craftsmen and women.
During my interview(starts at 16:05) Margaret asked me to describe my process of nuno felting and the creation of my fiber sculptures. Her second question was “what are the common threads of inquiry woven throughout your creative practice?”. I talk a bit about my love of nature stemming from my childhood spent on our family boat and how I enjoy playing with natural processes in the studio. Then I give a plug for my 2 person show at The Delaware Contemporary where I am showing sculpture and painting. That show, titled Flow is ongoing through Jan 9th.
