I had the opportunity to catch the Sheila Hicks retrospective exhibit at The Mint Museum and fell in love with this woman's colorful work. Boy, did she do some WORK! Fifty years of it.
Heavily influenced by South American textiles and weaving techniques, Hicks works with handcrafted linen dyed by hand and creates stunning visuals with color and scale. One of her pieces, "Mega Footprint Near the Hutch" extended 50 feet from the ceiling of the Mint down three flights to the lobby floor. Truly amazing.
If you're in the Charlotte area, the exhibit is here for one more week, closing on January 29. Catch it if you can!
Here some other links from my week worth noting...
This movie hits the Queen City this week. Get your tickets!
This computer movie made me happy. The way you click determines how the story will go.
Purchased this delicious Greek Yogurt made right next door in Atlanta. Local and handmade, my favorite.
You had me at nutella.
This book looks like my cuppa coffee.
Great posts for aspiring bloggers (like me!)
Love this honeycomb necklace.

I hope you had a lovely weekend. I can't believe January 2012 is almost a wrap. I'll be turning 31 this week. Eep! Looking forward to a homemade dinner from the Mister and beginning the next month of the Inside Job. Happy reading!
