So many details to attend to in setting up our re-newed space at 480 Main St. in Malden! As you know, the Gallery, Gift Shop and Performance Series is now staying open at least until June 2018 offering art, crafts, performances, classes, place for meetings, and more. There will be an artist reception for the Gallery on Friday, February 16, 7-9. I’ll let you know more as we get nearer.

Ta – Da! My contribution to the first month of exchange for Artists Unbound went to Sandy Donabed for our 2018, Construction/Deconstruction Theme. Each piece will be a prototype of sorts for a future piece, so the hope is that I’ll learn something each time that I can improve on or work out the details of what I’ll be trying to achieve. I’ve chosen to take some things I’ve done previously but take it to the next step in combining techniques to create dimensional pieces. The bottom layer is a Deconstructed Screen Print (DSP). I then deconstructed a mixed media piece on paper and mounted them on foam core board, along with some more DSP fabric and mounted those all atop the bottom layer making for a new-to-me dimensional piece of mixed media art. I’m pretty happy with it and so , it seems, is Sandy.  There’s room for improvement so I hope to do just that!

Linking up with Off The Wall Friday!

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.
