Interview with Leisa Rich
1. Who are you and what do you do, and what is your background?
My name is Leisa Rich. I describe myself as an experimentalist, although I was formally trained in the fiber arts — I began as a weaver in 1975— and continue to incorporate fibers processes and materials in my work, particularly free motion machine stitching, something I began doing in 1971 when my Mom taught me to use a sewing machine to darn and I used it to draw a dog instead.

Calls For Art

WCAGA’s The Art of Nature an Outdoor Art Installation 2016
Title: Metamorphosis Of Nature
*The WCAGA’s  Art of Nature is a six week long outdoor art exhibition featuring site-specific art installations inspired by the Metamorphosis of Nature to be located on the grounds of the Blue Heron Nature Preserve. Artists and artist teams are invited to submit proposals at no cost for WCAGA members and a 30.00 application fee for non-members to be paid through PayPal. From these proposals The Art of Nature will select up to 7-8 projects and award them a 200.00 stipend to create their work. 
*No power is available.
The Women's Caucus for Art of Georgia (WCAGA) is a chapter of the National Women's Caucus for Art (WCA), founded in 1972 to bring women's issues to the foreground of the College Art Association (CAA) and beyond. The focus was and continues to be supporting, recognizing and educating established and emerging women artists, art historians, critics, curators, museum personnel and other visual arts professionals.
In 2000 the Women's Caucus for Art of Georgia began when a group of eleven women artist met and decided to form a local chapter of the national organization. They began with a "just do it" attitude and a vision which they set out to realize. WCAGA is now comprised of over one hundred artists and art professionals from Georgia and other Southeastern states. The majority of our members, however, are artists based in metro Atlanta who work in many different media: sculpture, painting, photography, collage, printmaking and more.
*Blue Heron Nature Preserve, 4055 Roswell Road, Atlanta, GA 30342
*Blue Heron Nature Preserve was started in 2000 by Nancy Jones who was a public school art teacher for many years. Nancy was saddened by all the development ebbing away at the nature she and her son use to explore as he was growing up. Working with the City of Atlanta she started with 7 acres to create the BHNP and now has over 30 acres of green space in the heart of Buckhead. There are many future plans for the BHNP including a bike path that will connect with Path 400 which will connect to the Beltline. Get more information on this  Wondeful call on the WCAGA Website.
