On the first of July I will be heading to Denver for the annual Cherry Creek Art Festival sponsored by the Denver Arts Council.  It is an amazing event, with 350,000 people attending over a three day period.  This is the second year that I have been accepted to be in this show.  About 3500 artists from all over the country apply every year, but only 234 are selected.  The jury process for this show is one of the toughest because it has very sophisticated clientele.  The wearable art category was added recently and this year there are only five wearable artists in the show.  I am one of them.

This year I have also been selected (with a total of only 27 aritsts) to be part of a preview show at the art patrons gala event held on Thursday afternoon and evening. These artists are also given the best exhibition spots and have dinner with the invited guests.

I am looking forward to meeting a lot of people who live in Colorado and who are  interested in what I am doing. I will see seeing people I have been dealing with via phone for fashion shows and various exhibits.

Featured in the cover article "Maggy Pavlou: Felted Landscapes" by Kathaleen Roberts, in Jan/Feb 2009 issue of Fiberarts magazine.
Maggy Pavlou was given the Fiberarts Magazine Award for her Cactus Series Coat with Scarf during the 14th Annual ArtWear Fashion Week at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, Colorado, a benefit for the center's visual-arts program. This award is given to an artist whose work complements the aesthetic direction and mission of the magazine.
Outback Fibers Felting Fabric is needled prefelt wool batts imported from Australia. This felting fabric is the most innovative product on the market and is made from Extrafine Merino (20 microns) finely needled into pre-felt yardage, approximately 60" wide and 80" long, yet weighing only a few ounces. It is so sheer, one can see through it.
