New Artwork in Progress


I’m usually back in the studio in October after a summer hiatus for landscape and veggie gardening, traveling, and family events.  I’M BACK early this year after being fired up by my week of painting with Karen Stiehl Osborn and Von Biggs.

Top photo is a stack of five artworks with the top edges showing.  They are ready for backing and stitching. Below is a detail of one artwork.  They will be additions to the ongoing Boundary Waters series.

“Home” Wins Best of Show!

Home by Virginia A. Spiegel

An exhibition of surface design fiber art, Watershed was be held at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, MN in June  and July. I just received word today that my artwork, Home, won Best of Show and a $500 prize. The juror was Pokey Bolton, Editor-in-Chief of Quilting Arts magazine.

Part of my artist statement: The first time I sat on a rock in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, my life and art totally changed. Here was a place where I could most truly be myself and feel a power that continues to drive my art making. I now plan my year and my life around the journeys my sister and I take to this quiet and wild place.

The artwork was required to be 18″ x 12.”  This artwork is obviously part of my ongoing Boundary Waters series and proves to me, once again, that the best art comes from the heart.
