Window at the Met.
A few months ago, our Sisters 7 group rented a display window in front of the Met Movie house in Oakhurst.. We had hoped we would get some good input from the display.. we change it out about every 6 weeks. Julie and Kathleen took on the job. Because as you can see, not many can get into that small space. Julie and Kathleen have lots of practice hanging the arts because they also have this "job" at our local co-op Timberline Gallery in Oakhurst.. We all bring a variety of pieces but they get the last word, on what goes up. You know color, balance, form, design etc. all play a part. Our theme this time was to think Spring.. I brought the photo of the rose at the top and one of my "wishing" gourds near Julie's feet. My other pieces are on the wall to the left. The reflections on the window make it hard to take a nice photo. We have a new show "Tropical Breeze "coming up the second week of June. I am working on another kite.. will show the work in progress soon.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
