Hello, Hello!! I know I haven't posted a lot recently, but I have (another) good excuse...I've been working like crazy to get some pieces made and assembled. And here's the reason:
I'm excited - and a bit nervous - to announce that I will be a featured artist at the Artists' Cooperative of Westerly for the month of April. I will be showcasing my polymer jewelry, with a few pieces of a new porcelain and polymer combination I've recently begun making. One of the things I'm including in my exhibit is a set of storyboards. Each of them explains a different process I've used to create the polymer pieces, complete with actual slices from work in progress to help clarify the steps. I hope people find them interesting and informative. Here are a couple of samples:
The April show is themed: "Scratching the Surface - Textures." The show opens on Tuesday, March 31, and runs through Saturday, April 23. The gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Opening Reception will be held on Wednesday, April 6, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. Wine and refreshments are served. The gallery is located at 7 Canal Street in downtown Westerly, Rhode Island, just down the street and on the opposite side from Dylan's restaurant. For more information, you may visit the web site: http://www.westerlyarts.com.
I am sharing the large street front window with a gentleman who makes mosaic glass tables. The Cooperative has artists representing a wide variety of mediums including pottery, porcelain, woodworking, silver, sculpture, glass, watercolor, oils, pastels, photography, fabric work and a variety of mixed-media.
Should you find yourself in Westerly during this time, please stop by! ~Kristie
