News from SAQA-CT artist Liz Alpert Fay (from Alpert Fay’s newsletter “Textile Art News”):
This image depicts a detail of my "Milk Thistle" sculpture that will appear in the Art of the Northeast Show at the Silvermine Guild Arts Center.
To see the entire piece in person, you have to attend the show, which runs from April 30 - June 11. The center is located at 1037 Silvermine Road in New Canaan, Connecticut.
If you can't make the show you can see the entire piece on my website.
The Silvermine Galleries are recognized as one of New England's most respected showcases for established and emerging artists. The highly regarded Art of the Northeast, begun in 1949, is held each spring. The exhibition attracts thousands of entries from artists residing in the nine northeastern states.
This is the first time that one of my sculptures will be publicly exhibited and I'm thrilled.
