a weekend of creative inspiration brought me to the blog today...a gathering with women artists to discuss the coming year, a trip to a new Museum, an old neighborhood...a bit of time in the studio and such unseasonably incredible weather I took off on my bike and simply ran out of time for the rest of the trips on my list...saving some for next time
Helikon, a gallery and studio space in RINO, it's hip and smart and filled with inspiration...also offers life drawing sessions each Saturday
the Museum of Outdoor Art, some interesting outdoor pieces but not displayed all that well...
the indoor exhibit however...wonderfully thought provoking and interesting work by the Colorado Springs Artist Scott Johnson.
his exhibit entitled Mute Earth, speaking to the nature of earth and dirt and other elemental matter...these pieces, books that were covered with slip and fired, turning into a delicate sculpture of line and form, seeming to be slipping away before our eyes.
salt encrusted garment, fired to this solitary looking creature of the earth...
a little time spent on this new piece...monarch dialogues, more layers to add to this conversation between life and spirit...movement between the planes of life and death
a huge thank you to Laura at Bella Frida for asking me to be a featured artist for the Day of the Dead show...wonderful opening with face painting, henna painting...artwork and a store full of fun and vibrant Mexican art and craft
the local King Soopers made this amazing cake and my work felt right at home amongst the other fabulous art
such a fun night! This work will be in the shop through the first of November...
