Good News...
So happy to be able to announce that the President of the Surface Design Association will come to the Netherlands and will open the Exhibition in Leiden. The opening will be at Galerie Zone on Wednesday, May 13 at 6 pm.

Also, Astrid will attend the Meet & Greet at my studio in Tilburg, planned for Saturday May 16.
hour to be set at a later moment.

We are setting up a program right now because Astrid offered to give 2 Presentations,
one about the SDA itself, called
A Snapshot of the Surface Design Association
and another one related to her own work
"Astrid Hilger Bennett: A Life in Textiles" 
 
Of course we hope members will join us and present themselves, too.
In the afternoon we will go to Galerie High Five Art in Baarle Nassau where we will visit the other Beyond Boundaries exhibition. So more details to follow.

Finally, the jury has made up their mind and selected the work,
to be exhibited in either Baarle Nassau or Leiden in May 2020.

Here is the flyer / announcement.
 
Of course we hope that those involved come and visit>

Greetings,

So far my call for joining us in Leiden and Baarle Nassau in May 2020 rendered approx. 40 positive answers. Members from all over Europe wrote to me they want to participate and send in work.
This is very hopefull. I will be in touch again by email around Summertime to remind everyone and check whether those 40 members are still planning to send in work.
Remember: deadline to send in images is October 1, 2019.
The jury will select and their deadline / decision day is December 1, 2019.
Stay positive and stay in the loop !!

As from Today - November 11 I - your SDA rep for Europe - will be posting again on my SDA EU blog. There has been a long silence since nothing has been organised until now.
In May a small group of approx. 20 members came to my studio in Tilburg to meet and greet and make plans for a new conference and for 2 exhibitions for SDA members only concurrent with the Textiel Festival in Leiden (May 2020).
For more information regarding the Festival check their website www.textielfestival.nl
And i will keep you posted regarding our plans for 2020.
SO pls follow me and check regularly. There is more to come!

Surface Design Conference:

Well, next week Thursday June 6, this conference starts in (hopefully) sunny San Antonio (USA).
Sadly to say only very few international (oversea) members signed up (9 in total) which I feel is very disappointing. What to say... I myself am flying next Monday via Houston to San Antonio arriving late afternoon. On wednesday I am taking the fiber tour, visiting 2 musea and Jane Dunnewold's studio. We will be treated to some couleur locale during lunch..click on the following link to see where we are going..http://www.augiesbs.com/index.asp.     

The conference days will be filled with meetings, visiting exhibitions (my favourite part), a trunkshow and a vendors' market, but also demonstrations and lectures. I am really looking forward to be part of this.

After the conference I am taking a 2-day E-textiles workshop with Lynne Bruning. This is very exciting as well. A good idea maybe to invite Lynne to come to Tilburg and teach the same overhere.

I will try to post images and reports while attending, but also on my facebook page.
So pls keep an eye out for more news!
