New Year. 2014.

Always happy to support a fellow artist and friend, as I did on January 3, 2014. Artists Incorporated, a local art gallery, hosted a book signing and reception for Charlie "Tin Man" Lucas. Good food. Great music. Love his new book.

Charlie doesn't venture very far from his two studios (Pink Lily and Selma, AL) so it was a real treat to hang out with him and share a couple of stories and a laugh.

Looking forward to seeing him and spending a little more time yapping it up, later this year, at the Annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts.

HOLDING THE LINE and my October 2013 schedule

Seven months have passed since my last post.

I've spent most of the spring and summer living, breathing, talking about my portfolio of prints dedicated to the activists and foot soldiers of the 1963 Birmingham Civil Rights Movement.  HOLDING THE LINE is the title of the portfolio of prints and the book. The book can be purchased on-line at debrariffe.zenfolio.com

Bookmark this page. 
I'll bring you new information about the prints over the next few days.

You'll find a lovely article about my needlepoint and art in the September 2013 issue of Southern Lady magazine. This is a screen shot of the cover. The bar has been set so much higher, after working with the professionals who came to my home studio for the four hour photo shoot. Moving forward, I won't settle for anything less!

Here is my October 2013 schedule brochure.

Heritage Hall Museum Exhibition: More Than "Just A Craft"

Needlepoint             "fire flies"      © Debra Eubanks Riffe
Last week was ca-ra-zy!
The past five days have been tornadic.

I, generally, like to have a little more control over my calendar: who I need to meet, where I have to be at any given moment. It's important for me to pause every once in a while and assess whether or not I'm making progress. It was virtually impossible to pause, at the end of each day last week, and feel a sense of accomplishment. Staying on top of email messages, driving to appointments, carving blocks. All of it collided and by day three I had a real moment of clarity. Creating and selling my art is now a full blown business.

Today I'm back in my happy place. I'm in my studio working on new linoleum cuts and drinking caffeine (my ONLY vice). The phone is turned OFF!  The television is turned OFF!  I'm listening to Radio Classics on SiriusXM Radio and lovin' it. I'm in Debbe's World.

Moving forward . . . I've been invited to exhibit at the Heritage Hall Museum in Talladega, AL located at 200 South Street, East. Titled: MORE THAN "JUST A CRAFT": Needlepoint and Printmaking Art of Debra Eubanks Riffe - the artist reception will be Sunday, February 10th from 2:00 - 3:30PM.  You're invited. Attached is the front of the invitation/card that was mailed to patrons.

If you're not on my mailing list and you'd like to be notified about future exhibits contact me at: debra.riffe@gmail.com. See you next Sunday.
