While compiling the "She Votes" book I made a couple of videos about the book. This book is historic in nature in that it features 113 original artworks created by 69 artists who are all members of Women's Caucus for Art. Most artists are members of the Southern Callifornia Women's Caucus for Art Chapter but some are by members of other Chapters and Members-At-Large. The catalog is now available on Amazon.com

The virtual exhibit will be up until the end of the year. I have been working on this project for a couple of years. Actually this project started casually by dipping fabric that was tied in the shibori method into my Indigo Bath. As many of my projects are created I can start blindly with just a feeling and the project evolves with time. I love this process as it lends itself to so much personal discovery. The total different sites I worked on probably were well over fifteen. The story behind "Water Bubbles" is a fun playful one.

We are creating the book to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote. Turnout for the book has been more than I could have imagined and the 4 x 6 artworks are a delight and some days I just have to look at them and try to figure out how they created the artistic gems. To particpate you just need to be a member of Womens's Caucus for Art or join a Chapter/be a Member At Large. www.nationalwca.org. More info and release is located on my web site. www.bonniejofiberarts.com or feel free to contact me.
Here are some pictures of the wonderful artworks that I have received so far. Some members have even created 4-5 artworks, let your imagination take hold.
Cut off date is July 31, 2020. If you need more time just contact me at email@example.com.
Voting is so important this year and we should celebrate those before us that fought tirelessly for our right to vote! We will have a online show of all of the works this fall for your viewing pleasure. Art works all along have been posted on SCWCA Facebook page for viewing.

Here is a new artwork I received for the "She Votes" altered book I am autoring for Southern California Women Caucus For Art. This a really wonderful organization that I have been a member
of since 2007. The idea came from 2020 being the Centennial of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. This is a big date to celebrate so I thought why not commemorate this
momentus occasion. So with the Board's (of which I am a member) backing we were off and running. The book will be exhibited and hopefully be placed in a museums archive after the book has toured.
Deadline to be included is July 31, 2020. Please help me fill this book.
Here is just a preview of what I have received. These are little gems that is for sure!
