I'm pleased and honored to announce that A Show of Hands was juried into The Linus Galleries' on-line exhibition, Political Statements. You can see all the artwork selected for the on-line exhibition here.
A Show of Hands, 2012, 18" x 96"
A Show of Hands is my eight foot tall totem about voting. It has the verbiage of most of the amendments concerning voting stamped across the surface, along with a compelling statement by Dwight D. Eisenhower, "The future of this Republic is in the hands of the American voter". In addition to the language, I thread sketched outlines of hands as homage to our earliest method of voting: by a show of hands.

I am so pleased that this piece has found a place to be seen outside of my studio. I'm equally thrilled that my textile piece was selected; it appears to have been the only fiber art juried into the 47 piece on-line show. Even if it doesn't make it into the brick and mortar exhibition scheduled for February, I'm honored to have been included.
