Sorry for no news until now regarding Inspirational 11, I have been like an octopus with a tentacle in so many different projects, from writing articles, to promoting artists, to figuring out how new projects are going to work practically. Involved in a really exciting and large-scale one that is slowly coming along, pretty breathless about that, but keeping quiet about it for a little while longer.
Anyway, it is time to release the first article about the coming Inspirational 11. This Inspirational is going to take the same route as Inspirational 10, as in a portfolio of artists that run on a theme. The last issue had the theme of eight years of The Textile Blog, and starred all of the contemporary artists that have been featured over that period. Inspirational 11 has the theme of Word & Symbol and stars the work of contemporary artists that use words and symbols as an integral, or significant part of their work.
I have been so lucky to be able to get such a rich cross section of contemporary artists for this issue. There are fine art painters, textile artists, mixed media artists, all of the highest caliber. the full list of artists that have agreed to be featured is as follows:
Alicia Eaton Lewis, Anatol Knotek, Brian Kenny, Chazalon Respress, China Marks, Dana Frankfort, Emmanuel Signorino, Emma Parker, Gregory Siff, Henry Hussey, Ines Seidel, Laurie Doctor, Lisa Anne Auerbach, Maria Wigley, Mark Hopper, Meg Hitchcock, Peg Grady, Peyton Freiman, Pokras Lampas, Sara Impey, Sergio Albiac.
The release date for Inspirational 11 is set for July 11. Information regarding Inspirational 11, as well as all the other issues of Inspirational, can of course be found at The Textile Blog site, as well as on social media, links to which can be found to the right of this article.
That is all for now. I hope you enjoy your week ahead, and thanks for your patience.
