A REMINDER:The Sanctuary and Safekeeping exhibit is on display until March 17th. The show includes an interactive “studio” area where the artists share pieces of our artistic processes with touchable in-progress art and tools. It’s been described as “suggesting a puppet-maker’s workshop and a partially dismantled carnival”, which sounds fun, right? I know my brain feels like both of those things when I’m making art.
SAVE THE DATE: Last week I dropped of a fresh delivery of HankiePankie Art Hankies to AIC headquarters. This year marks the Art*O*Mat®’s 20th year, and I’ve been participating in the project for over 10 of those years. June 10th, SECCA will be hosting a swap meet to celebrate the anniversary. I’ve been to two previous swaps and they are always good fun, with artists trading pieces and stories, and art collectors young and old excited to meet Art*O*Mat artists and learn more about the project.
This Friday, Millicent, Nicole and I will be giving an informal talk and tour of our current exhibit, Sanctuary and Safekeeping, at Sawtooth School for Visual Art. Come by and hear a little more about our collaboration and our personal art processes before the WSNC Art Hop.
Artist Discussion and Guided Exhibit Tour: Friday, February 3rd, 5:30pm – 7pm
Please join artists Nicole Uzzell, Millicent Greason and Woodie Anderson for an informal artist talk on their current collaborative exhibit, “Amalgamated Transmutations: Sanctuary and Safekeeping,” now showing in the Davis Gallery. The artists will discuss their artistic processes and share how they each explored themes of safety and belonging in this very interactive exhibition.
Admission is free. For information, visit www.sawtooth.org or call (336) 723-7395.
The exhibit runs through March 17.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen parts and pieces of this exploration through the past year, and now I’m really excited and energized to see how our individual visions are coming together and creating a dialog of artwork around this subject in the gallery.
I hope you will visit this exhibit in the coming months and add your thoughts to the ongoing conversation. It’s one of particular importance as we face the challenges in this new year. More info about the exhibit and opening reception after the jump.
Wishing you all safety and peace and days full of loving joy this season.
Thanks to everyone who supported local crafts folk and artists this season.It really means a lot. I could go on about that, but I won’t. 🙂 This season is busy for all of us, I know, and I hope you all find time to nurture your hearts and souls with art, music, loved ones, and whatever else keeps the spark in your heart.
I’m looking forward to starting the new year with a creative whirlwind as I wrap up work for my collaborative showSanctuary and Safekeeping (opening Thursday, January 19th). I’ll share more about this exhibit in the coming weeks, though I can say that even though the topic we are all working with for this show was chosen a year ago, I feel its power very much in these final weeks as the pieces for the show come together at last.
Happy Holidays, everyone! I’ll be at Krankies Craft Fair 2016 this Saturday with various artworks and handprinted goods.This is one of my favorite events of the season, always packed with lots of clever and creative gifts for all your loved ones. Join us for a fun filled festive day! There will be food trucks, a coloring room, and over 60 vendors with something for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
