Wish You Were Here!























Earlier this summer, one of the local desert museums, Tohono Chul, invited fiber artists from all over the world to send them a fabric postcard depicting Arizona. Art4Mail, a yahoo group that I belong to, is well represented in this exhibit because two of us have our postcards displayed. Those who chose to, could put their cards up for sale and I decided that I should do that and give the proceeds back to the museum. Miriam, from Ireland is my Art4Mail partner here, who also offered her card for sale and if you'll notice, both our cards have blue dots near the description in the catalog. This means that they both sold for $25 each, so the museum gained a bit of profit from us! I might add that not all the cards have sold! This was a great way to show off our postcard art and also see what others have made as well.
