The joint was jumpin’ at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River last night! I got to meet some of my favorite textile artists last night, Sandy Gregg and Diane Wright, whose work I have admired for some time now.

 

Sandy Gregg’s work:

Thirty Cups. Sandy Gregg. web detail. cups. web

 

Diane Wright’s:

City Wall. Sandy Gregg. web. City Wall detail. Sandy Gregg. web.

You can see why I their work appeals to me. especially in light of my own piece in the show.

 

Janis Doucette:

Views... Views From A Road...close up

What they all have in common is the hand printmaking.

More to show at a later date!

Better yet, you can take a spin down to Fall River where they’ll be shown until  DEC 27, 2014!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
