WCA/WHM - "Herstory" Juried Show - My First Show!

San Diego Women's Caucus for Art (WCA/SD) Juried show called "Herstory" opened last night and is showing until March 29, 2009 at the Women's History Museum and Educational Center (WHM) (2323 Broadway Ave, San Diego, CA).

I am so excited to have one of my pieces picked for the show! It is my first show ever and it feels good that it was through an organization that I am a part of and held in a place that I have volunteered for years.

"Weaving My Story" by Jaime Lyerly
Encaustic, beeswax, dressmaker patterns, nails, wood, and yarn on 12 X 12 in birch panel.

There was a great band called Kontious and the Ko-op which rocked outside for the first hour of the show.Here are some pictures of the people and art all crammed into the intimate space of the Women's History Museum

Wonder Woman even made it! Okay, maybe not - it is a fashion design piece

Me and my piece - "Weaving My Story"

There are many other pieces that were wonderful in the show. However I would need to take some pictures when it is less crowded. More pictures to come!

I am so glad to share these pictures with you. Until next time...

Happy Art Making and Show Entering! ~ Jaime
