Sierra Artist Flash Mob, History, Thank you!
It looked quiet to start out with, but soon we had a bit of a crowd. Yeah, even some found us on Facebook.
Jon and Carolyn were entertaining, dropping paint from the ladder, and the photographers were having a field day with sneak shots... always remembering to ask permission.
Our Art Flag table at a quieter moment.. soon all the spaces were filled. We had squares of fabric, permanent marking pens, and imagination! I think we gathered about 30 flags at the end, some of the artists took their art work home, the others were flying from the rope we strung between the building supports..
We also had some sales at Timberline Gallery.. We had guests from San Fran area, on their way to Yosemite.. Best to always stop in Oakhurst, you never know what we are going to be putting on..
The Produce Place supplied us with delightful sandwiches, and delicious home made soup. Many decided to have dinner right there or take food home. Next time we will have some music. Hey, musicians you really missed 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.
