Pennisula Fine Art Center
101 Museum Drive
Newport News, VA 23606  United States

The galleries at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center will be transformed into various rooms of the home -- living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, library, bathroom.  The theme is home is where the art is when you step into this exhibition.  The exhibition stretches our imagination about what home is and how these very familiar objects are transformed visually.  


Review in Washington Post

The Washington Post reviewed the Material as Medium exhibition at the Target Gallery earlier this year and even featured Pelt in their review!  The show was juried by Aaron Macintosh and featured a number of artists pushing the boundaries of the textiles field.  

Haystack Open Studio Residency

I will be heading up north to Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine for the month of June.  

I am honored to be one of the artists selected for the Open Studio Residency Program.   The residency provides two weeks of studio time and an opportunity to work in a supportive community of makers. The program accommodates approximately 50 participants—from the craft field and other creative disciplines—who have uninterrupted time to work in six studios (ceramics, fiber, graphics, iron, metals, and wood) to develop ideas and experiment in various media. Participants can choose to work in one particular studio or move among them depending on the nature of their work.  The Open Studio Residency fosters a dynamic exchange of ideas among peers. The school’s fab lab will also be open, providing an opportunity for experimentation with digital fabrication as a way for residents to augment and complement their creative practices. In addition to open studios, there will be time for participants to share work and discuss ideas across disciplines.  Residents include established and emerging artists working in a range of visual art and craft media.  The residency program is supported by Haystack’s Windgate Foundation Endowment for Programs. Other than the application fee, there is no charge to attend. It will run from May 28 - June 9, 2017. 


When the residency is over, I will stay up at Haystack for another two weeks to assist Jaydan Moore with his class, Found, happening during session 1.

Talk about dreams coming true, getting to call Haystack home for an entire month!
