>Bead International 2008


Today marks the start of a busy weekend for me. I packed my Citgo sign and all my seed beads into my little travel case because I’m off to Pittsburgh, PA to visit my sister. On Friday, she and I are headed to the Dairy Barn Cultural Arts Center in Athens, OH for the Bead International 2008 opening night! I am very excited! If you happen to be in the Southeastern Ohio area anytime this summer, please stop by and check it out!

Bead International 2008 Dairy Barn Arts Center The Lone Beader Boston contemporary fine craft pop artist

Come see an assortment of beaded artworks, from fine jewelry to loom weaving to sculpture, at Bead International 2008, a biennial international juried exhibition on display from May 23 to September 1. There are 68 artworks on display, representing 53 contemporary artists (including me!) from across the United States and beyond. Pieces range in style from the traditional to the whimsical as they incorporate a variety of colors and materials. This exhibition will spark your creativity and broaden your perspective, as it considers any pierced object to be a bead. Works range in size from very small to life size. Many of the works are available for purchase. Additionally, Ohio University Press, Athens, Ohio, will publish a full-color book documenting the complete Bead International 2008 and Beyond Basketry 2008 collections.
