Sierra Art Trails-Kathleen Mattox & Gretchen Lee
Kathleen had a colorful display of her Mixed Media Watercolors. Displaying her cards, paintings, and book marks to name a few items. We were very lucky that her Ez up did not collapse during the night from the rain. We had to scramble because the top filled with water and the legs were about the collapse.. But success with many helpful hands, and everything was under control by the first guest on Sunday. Gretchen showed her beautiful gourd pieces and explained to the guests her technique of painting them , and her creative wall murals.
Julie was busy with lots of friends/a new comers in her home studio and I never got a photo of her or her studio.. but I bet she will have some photos on her blog,, check it out.
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.
