This is a piece that will be going in the gallery show in March. It's from one of our homework assignments from our book study. It's an acrylic piece, done in a grid in black, white and gray with the spot of color being the stamped numbers. The entire piece was "painted" using a credit card. It's called COUNTDOWN.
If I am not mistaken this is Mary's piece, same assignment, also for the show. Still to be framed.
This I think belongs to Chris. She plans on doing some quilting on hers, again the assignment done in fabric, like Mary's.
Same directions, same finished size but all completely different. That's what a love.
And this, if I am not mistaken, which I could very well be, belongs to Linda.
They will all be framed in a 12"x12" frame.
Some done in fabric will be quilted, some not.
We are also doing a group project with black and white Mandalas. This one belongs to Chris.
This one was done by Mary.
This handmade bowl was made by Linda.
The gallery show at the Downtown Madison Senior Center is scheduled for the month of March. Now, the group has to buckle down and get not only their group projects completed but their own work they want to display.
In March the Farmer's Market starts serving breakfast in the Senior Center. On Saturday's hundred's of people come into the building to enjoy the Farmer's Market and the breakfast and hopefully to enjoy the art that surrounds them, on the walls and in the cases.
It's a lot of work but I love the idea that we are hopefully educating some people about Mixed Media and Textile Art. I would love to hear people say, "I could do that." and then go home and DO IT.
The 3150 Studio Artists and their spouses, met at one of the artists home last night for a pot luck. Pam's house was filled with her art work. On the drive home, Zeus mentioned that it was a fun night and the first thing he noticed was the energy level of the evening was raised just from being surrounded by all that wonderful artwork.
So, get busy, get your artwork up on your walls. Get your children's artwork up on the walls. Feel the energy? Can you feel yourself smiling?
Ok, that's a good thing. Now, go and create.
"Time is an invention. NOW is a reality. So much creativity is happening for the simple reason that we have withdrawn ourselves from past and future.
Our whole energy remains blocked either in the past or in the future.
When you withdraw all your energy from past and future a tremendous explosion happens.
That explosion is creativity."
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, The Good Is Out.
