Five tapestries by Rowen Schussheim-Anderson were selected for the recently published1,000 Artisans Textiles: Contemporary Fiber Art, Quilts and Wearables (Quarry Books). Rowen has been selected as a panelist for the upcoming joint meeting of the MidAmerica College Art Association/Foundations in Art: Theory and Education. The panel, entitledGlobal Color, will explore issues of multiculturalism and global identity, stressing the importance of teaching students to think conceptually in terms of global color as well as traditional western concepts. Rowen will present studio assignments with student outcomes and photographs she took on Latin American and West African Terms representing a non-Western color aesthetic.

Rowen's work was selected by a jury into fiberart international: 2010 Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber, which traveled the country from the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, terminating at the Mint Museum in San Francisco. She was juried into the 42nd Annual Exhibition: Clay, Fiber, Paper, Metal, Wood at the Octagon Center for the Arts, in Ames. In the fall she exhibited in the Annual Small Works Invitational 2 at Elon University (NC) for the second year. She was also juried into the 60th Annual Quad-State Exhibition at the Quincy Art Center (IL), into Craft Forms: 15th International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Craft at the Wayne Art Center (PA), and into National Fiber Directions at the Wichita Center for the Arts. She received a third prize in the Northern Colorado Weavers Guild Fiber Celebration, a juried exhibition at the Loveland Museum in Colorado.
