"Our Wild Lands" Art Exhibition 2011

"Our Wild Lands" a juried  Exhibition put on by Sierra Art Trails at the Stellar Gallery, open till December 4th. in Oakhurst, Calif.

My piece " Reflections", is a whole cloth, hand dyed cotton fiber, machine quilted piece with leaves stenciled along the base.

"Love it, Don't Leave It" was inspired one day, when I was  picking up trash along the road way.  Of course, I had to use pop tops, but also some found pieces. I incorporated rubbings with oil paint sticks, hand dyed fabrics, stencils that I made, beading, hand dyed threads and a copper piece I found in the plumbing department at a Lowe's store is used as hanger. It has machine and hand quilting.

We had a good turn out, guitar music and refreshments.  I enjoy creating for a Theme, especially when it relates to the area we live in.. I have to  focus on the different aspects and sort through a variety of possibilities, gets my creative juices flowing..  Usually it is a short time frame that gets in the way and I need to review what I want to say, it is fun to have a message that the viewers appreciate.

  2. thank you Joyce.... It was fun that both our work was accepted to the exhibition. I especially love that some people are making 3 dimensional installations, it really adds to the ambiance. I hope people traveling in the Oakhurst area over the holidays, have the opportunity to stop in at Gallery Row on highway 41, ca. Remember we have a special celebration happening...
