Timberline Gallery - Praying Mantis- August
August and my turn to sit Timberline Gallery. I enjoy sitting the gallery and chatting about our artists when we have guests from all over the world. Yes, they are visiting Yosemite, but they do take the time to pop in and ask about the local art and artists.. The landscape above is one by Caroline Hartling,, Be sure to check out Timberlines Web site, to see all the artists listed.
Chris Sorenson works with metal... Not only works with metal components but is a binding force in Fresno when it comes to metal art.. This is one of his small beautiful pieces, but see who else likes it..a Praying Mantis. Is this opposites attract?
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.
