Thread Upon Threads

Multi-Dimensional Constructs by Rob Monroe

Feb 092017

I will be working hard for the next couple on months. I have been invited to do a large show at the Old Bakery and Emporium and need to do a fair bit of WORK!  I have 4 more projects I want to include, one, a very deep one (3 inches), two larger works(22″ x 24″ and 24″ X 24″)

So I have some new pieces.  Hidden Black was an exploration into the look of a Black pattern directly below a White thread of the same pattern.  I think it has potential, but I may want to change some aspects of it for the next time.

Lite Brite was an interesting exploration into cross threading.  There are two basic “shapes”.  Each mounted from opposite corners.  I like the colors.

Lite Brite – $500





But the most interesting piece for me, perhaps because it is the most recent (finished 2/8/17) is Das Silber-Cube.

Some updates.  First of all, this information is in my newsletter which you can get, if you don’t already, by going to the contact page and sending me your email address.  I don’t send it out often, only when I have a show or a new project to show (and they do take time).  You can drop off the list at your own choosing.

If anyone has previously tried to use my Contact Me page, they may have found some difficulty.  Well, actually they would definitely have had difficulty because it hasn’t worked since this site was first established.  My humble apologies.  But it has been worked on and tested, and I now WILL get the mail.

But the main news has to do with the fore mentioned shows, Three pieces, Prince’s Star, Encouragement and Cornering the Gold Market are in the Round Rock Fall exhibit, located at Texas State University Round Rock Campus, 1555 University Blvd., Round Rock, TX, till November 18th, 2016.  Level 13  is at the Georgetown Art Hop. my first state wide show, located at the Georgetown Art Center and the  Georgetown Public Library (my piece is in the Library).  This exhibit will be up through October 29, 2016.

unnamed-1In 2017 I have been invited into two larger shows each taking eight to ten pieces, the first in January will be displayed at the JCC Austin, 7300 Hart Lane, Austin, TX, this Exhibit will be open from January 23 through February 27th, 2017.

But I am very proud to be invited to return to the Old Bakery and Emporium (the link displays the 2016 show) located at 1006 Congress Ave. Austin, TX, in April of 2017.  The exhibit will go through the month.

For those into social media, I am also pleased to announce that I am now on Instagram.

With encouragement from family and friends, I have opened an Instagram account under ThreadUponThreads.
So I now have Instagram, my ThreadUponThreads Facebook page, and my Website here.  I feel such the social media Dweeb.

I guess it was worth the effort.   Cornering the Gold Market, Prince’s Star, and Encouragement, have all been accepted in Round Rock Arts next Juried show, the Fall Photography and Sculpture Exhibit.  Round Rock Arts have been very good to me over the last two years.  We will see how it goes.

One Design, Two Outcomes

I have been working on Triangular frames recently.  To be honest, at this time, I am not sure why or what was the Muse.  But never-the-less, there were some distinct problems.  I might have mentioned it in my Facebook Page, but I do not remember. The original idea was three overlapping triangles.  At first it […]

Beginning Again and Happy Holidays

I am now firmly established in my new home.  I have repaired, put up shelving, painted, bought rugs, adjusted furniture, set up my computer system, wired speakers, and established a working space in my garage to drill all my innumerable holes. You may remember the design I had planned for my next project.  Well, this is how it gets printed […]
