Kelly Baum, curator of contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, selected Angela's "Inlet at Sunset I" for the Peter Pellerzi Fiber Art Award, given by the Greenwich Art Society at its 100th Annual Members' Exhibition. Angela's piece, one of 77 accepted from 247 submitted, sold at the show's opening reception on Friday, April 28th. To see it before it disappears into a private collection, visit the show at the Bendheim Gallery by May 30th!

I find great joy and fulfillment in designing and creating art out of fabric. Not infrequently, art has "happened" when two or more otherwise unacquainted fabric pieces - creased and frayed or flat and squared up - accidentally bumped into each other and became friends. Time in the studio is a feast of experimentation and discovery, as the fabrics take me on adventures in depth, dimension, metaphor and whimsy.
