Enter, Sheepishly

Pun not originally intended, but take it as you will. It’s been over a month (eep, month an a half?!) since my last post here, and I am ashamed. There has been plenty to post about, but I just haven’t … Continue reading →

Ternion2

Now, for an addendum to my initial post on Textile Ternions by Diana Guenther! First, the most important update is that the exhibit is still hanging! From what I heard, it will hang until around March 12, so if you … Continue reading →
