At the Gallery

During a recent weekend I was one of three textile artists featured at Good Goods Gallery in Saugatuck, Michigan.  Dawn Edwards (on left) who makes fabulous felt hats is demonstrating felting to a customer (on right).
Sandra Adams who is the third featured artist is watching with me.  Sandra's medium is also felting and she, too, had a table out in Good Good's garden for demonstrating her techniques that result in scarves ... scarves that I would hang on a wall as art, rather than wear.

I demonstrated my "ortwork" collage technique in the upstairs gallery.

Above I was composing a small lake piece.  The foundation of which was made up of cut-offs from "The Lake" installation piece.
Two were completed that afternoon.  Each was purchased almost before I could get the back signed.  In fact, the first one was gone before I thought to take a photo.  Here's a picture of the second one.
"Piece of The Lake" 8"x 8"

Speaking of a piece of "The Lake", two of the five rows of my ArtPrize entry is hanging in Good Good's Gallery until next Friday.
Next Sunday all 5 rows will be installed in DeVos Place ready for the BIG exhibition that begins September 22nd.

Judging from the panels behind you, it will be a spectacular installation. I can hear the waves and feel the breeze!

An exciting day for you next Sunday Nellie. Even incomplete your fabulous lake masterpiece looks wonderful. I love the way you make use of the cut-offs and am not surprised the mini lakes were snapped up.

I read a little about your gallery show on Colleen's blog but it was fun to read in your own words. Your lake panels are lovely - sure wish I could have been there for your demo and to meet you in person. I hope your installation goes well.
