Common Currents

300 artist represent 300 years. Every artist gets a year produces an art piece.
Mine is 1953: Weaving, at the most elemental level, consists of warp and weft, each running in a separate direction but intertwined, much like the flights and travelers who pass through an airport. In 1953 the San Antonio Airport became a commercial airport. The former Terminal 2 was built in 1951-53, along with the FAA control tower and a baggage claim area. This inspired me to weave the structure as a tapestry. The importance of creating something which seizes the moment and transforms it through medium and connection is what I strive for.

I didn't even take a picture of it before I delivered it.
Here is an sample from the loom. I actually wove a tapestry.
