May the light of the New Year shine upon you and your circle of family love. It’s been many months since I have written a blog post — so I will try to share all the news of past, present and future. One of the best ways to keep up with my studio happenings is on Instagram @sdhaskell I will put lots of links to fill in missing details.
This June and September I was out in LA, CA. I was honored to participate in the FiberArts Now 4 Exhibition at Craft in America. In September I gave a presentation at workshop at the Textile Arts LA Annual Textile Symposium . What a treat to be with much a robust textile community!!
In November “Each One: A 9/11 Memorial” returned home to Portsmouth and was reinstalled in City Hall Chambers. This community art piece was on loan to the September 11th Memorial and Museum for nearly 3 years.
Last January I received the honor of a one person show titled “Pondering the Invisible” with The Common Thread Gallery (September 10 – October 15). There is a sweet little hard bound catalogue of this exhibit. I am selling it for $20 including SH. Email me for a copy = Sarah(at)sarahhaskell(dot)com
And finally …I completed the huge four panel piece that I began last spring. Sixteen feet wide, six feet tall – indigo blues woven in a subtle gradation. I wanted to replicate that wide expansive horizon that I saw and felt while sailing across the Atlantic 9 years ago. Some images just refuse to go away until I create them.
January 8, 2020 I leave for a three month sabbatical – in Bali and SE Asia. Please follow me on Instagram and FB. I’ll be studying traditional dye techniques and as well reading, and relaxing. Here’s wishing everyone a peaceful, prosperous and healthy New Year. Much gratitude for to all the encouragement and support. Peace – Sarah
