Susan Ferguson receives 2019-2020 Inspiration Grant from ArtsKC Regional Arts Council

The ArtsKC Regional Arts Council in December awarded me a 2019-2020 Inspiration Grant for my work creating the "Inside Out" solo exhibit that was held at William Jewell College in the fall of 2019. Here is the announcement on the website:

Susan Ferguson             Inside Out – A solo exhibit of woven wall hangings        Susan Ferguson of Independence, MO, is a weaver and fiber artist. Her most recent collection of woven wall hangings is featured in a solo exhibit titled “Inside Out” taking place Sept. 1-Oct. 30, 2019, at the Ruth E. Stocksdale Gallery at William Jewell College, Liberty, MO. Ferguson creates her works on rigid heddle looms, where she prefers to weave using her fingers instead of shuttles. She uses traditional yarns as well as deconstructed clothing and other non-traditional materials to weave abstract works. Inspiration Grant funds will be used to pay for the cost of yarn, rope, wood panels, wooden rods for mounting, copper tubing, hardware, copper wire, and fabric, as well as some photography, insurance and marketing costs.

I'm excited and honored to be an Inspiration Grant recipient for two years in a row.  Thanks, ArtsKC, for supporting my creative efforts!
