Amy Meissner: The light is returning.

Hello from Alaska.

This is the newsletter that’s never regular and never floods your inbox with garbage you don’t want. Also, you’re receiving this winter update because you’ve signed up on my website (thanks!), or because I’m interested in starting or continuing an art-related conversation with you.

(You can opt out at any time, but I hope you won’t!)

A November update from Amy in Alaska.

I’ve been engaged in a beautiful series of collaborative textile art workshops at the Anchorage Museum, made possible in part by a project grant from the Rasmuson Foundation. As of last night, we’ve completed 53 panels, on our way to over 70. Stay tuned for a blog post about that experience.

On December 2, I’m also offering a Family Workshop — Needle & Story — at the Anchorage Museum. There is still space, so local folks with kiddos, click the link to register before it fills right up!

I’m still receiving items for the Inheritance Project, and while I’m not officially crowdsourcing, I’m generally not turning anything away, either…but you may have to sweet talk me. Which is remarkably easy, apparently. For a recent post, see The 26th boxes of mystery.

Inheritance: makers. memory. myth. — the body of work made from these raw materials and powerful narratives sent to me from all over the world — will open at the Anchorage Museum May 2018, then travel to the State Museum in Juneau in December. The collaborative art project, this new mythology created by a new set of makers, will travel with it.

Well done, makers.

You have my deep gratitude for your time, needle skills and stories.

XO Amy
