“Mary Edna Fraser: Above the Earth” by Cecelia Dailey in Fiber Art Now, Fall 2014 issue

September 26th, 2014

Celie¬†Dailey’s 6-page spread in the latest Fiber Art Now issue is beautiful. “Mary Edna Fraser: Above the Earth” coincides with a book she has written, with the editor now at University of South Carolina Press. Celie has managed my¬†artistic career for the past 6 years and brought my work to a worldwide audience. I don’t know what I’d do without her. Through her filmmaking, photography and writing, she has been able to intimately observe my techniques and that’s really nice for an older artist. For my retirement, I plan to teach around the world using Celie’s professional insights.

The article and the upcoming book both feature the batik, Above Mobile Bay, which is to be installed at the new Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico in Mobile, AL.
