[context] TEXTURE at Art St. Louis

I am pleased to announce that my handmade paper construction, Sun Pans and Mica Drags, has been juried into the exhibition [context] TEXTURE at Art. St. Louis, August 13 - October 4, 2012. Jurors, Joe Chelsa and Jo Stealy, selected 58 works in all media by 44 regional artists from the 208 artworks submitted by 109 artists.

Cornwall, UK, the land of my husband’s birth, has a mining history dating back more than 3000 years.  Women, known as Bal Maidens, worked primarily above ground; but during the World Wars, they were often assigned mining duties previously reserved for men. My intent in Sun Pans and Mica Drags was to capture the essence and remnants of the 19th century china clay mines as seen still today from the air, through the earth and across the moors.

Opening reception is Saturday, August 11, 6-8pm.


  1. Hello Elizabeth. I am always intrigued to see how we find eachother's blogs on line ..... I found yours through Jennifer's Rust Junkie and came from there to have a look around yours. I have had a gorgeous wander back and forth - lots to keep me interested and coming back. Thank you. One way and another mostof us who love rust find each other.

  2. Dear Susan, Thank you for commenting. I had a look at your blog and your work is beautiful. I have tubs of pebbles and boxes of disused tea bags in my studio as well. Thank you for sharing your post and art inspired by your father and your family. Best ~ Elizabeth

  3. So glad to have your work in the current exhibit here, Elizabeth! Thank you very much for entering it. I'm sorry I missed the chance to meet you at the opening for this show. Hope to correct that next time.

    All the best to you in your creative work!
