Fine Art Shows
All art shows I participate in with my textile art are juried. My “category” may be fiber art or mixed media.
Following is a list of Florida shows where my art will be exhibited and offered for sale.
I add shows in order by date with the last ones at the top, going in backwards order.

2016 and prior
Getting started was a learning process. Beginning in 2015 as I participated in local exhibits I learned that not all art shows are alike and to be selective in where to exhibit my particular brand of creativity. Humorously, I learned to avoid art exhibits as a feature of a music venue with wine tasting, car show, craft show or flea market. I have done all these.
